Doctors blocked by Home Office from taking up vital NHS jobs

January 24, 2018 9:03 AM

In response to this article in the Guardian Councillor Inga Lockington said "The Home Office is out of touch with reality, setting the income bar so high. The pay levels of Public Servants set by the Government are not high enough to allow staff offered jobs to come to the UK and work. The Government knows it takes around ten years to train up doctors. Many young doctors trained in the UK are going abroad to work, tempted by good job offers, where the workload is not so high. What about Nurses and other staff will they be paid enough?"
