Bottom line is they need to pay more, a massive amount more. This is the argument the bankers used to get the 'best talent' and it worked for them. Take home pay needs to rise by around 50% to attract more GPs and get the system up and running again. The alternative, slow decline and large swathes of the population lacking basic medical services, doesn't bare thinking about.
