Almost one in five of the NHS's European doctors have made plans to quit Britain


Almost one in five of the NHS's European doctors have made plans to quit Britain, according to research that has raised fresh fears of a Brexit-induced medical brain drain.

In total, 45% of respondents to the BMA survey said they were thinking about leaving Britain following the result of the EU referendum, while a further 29% were unsure whether they would go.

Among those who were considering going elsewhere 39% - or 18% of the whole sample - have already made plans to leave. The 12,000 doctors from the EEA represent 7.7% of the NHS's medical workforce.

The findings come amid growing evidence that Brexit may exacerbate problems of understaffing in the NHS by making both retention and recruitment of EU staff more difficult.
