Doctors Challenge Change to Training for Overseas Medics


More than six in ten doctors are opposed to the government’s plans to stop permit-free training for overseas medics.

According to the British Medical Association (BMA), almost all respondents (92%) said that overseas doctors who had already started training in the UK should be able to complete it without deportation.

Doctors quizzed by BMA News magazine said that “doctors earning an honest living are being discriminated against”.

Radiologist Kwang Chin said these new training rules were grossly unfair: “We are objecting to the swiftness of the sweeping changes brought about with absolutely no warning.

“The government is now showing how it rewards hard work – by kicking you out of the country and effectively finishing off your career.”
