NHS Crisis Adding to Woes of Overseas Doctors in Britain
Apart from changes in work rules that have adversely affected Indian doctors' employment prospects, a financial crisis has gripped several hospitals in Britain's National Health Service (NHS), leading to hundreds of job losses. Almost every day, several hospitals announce job cuts to meet budget deficits. In recent weeks, the overall job losses in the NHS are said to be nearly 7,000 in 22 trusts and hospitals in different parts of the country. The financial crunch further lessens the prospects of thousands of Indian doctors currently seeking employment in Britain. New work rules have compounded the situation for them as now they can no longer work as part of "permit free training", and need work permits. Britain's health authorities are faced with higher numbers of local medical graduates and many more from the expanded European Union who have the right to work in Britain. The situation makes it difficult for non-EU nationals - such as Indian doctors - to secure employment in the NHS.
