So the Gov., bless their cotton socks, are telling people how there is a shortage of doctors (according to BBC News) and Trusts are spendinghuge amounts on locums to cover rotas, making patients safe again! Well I’ve got news for them. They are entirely responsible for any shortages. It’s a direct result of the immigration policy preventing Asian doctors from working in the UK. We had a good system before. Indian and Pakistani doctors came here,trained and went home. While they were here, they worked filling the junior posts and rotas worked because in the next tier there were smaller numbers.
