 NHS Recruits Medics from Kolkata to Fill Acute Shortage

Britain's National Health Service (NHS) is hiring many medics from India fo fill up a grave shortage of British medics.

NHS teams have been sent out to Kolkata to sign up junior doctors to keep their hospital departments open.


Dozens of trusts across the country are struggling to fill thousands of vacancies because there aren't enough young UK medics to go around.

But many of the empty posts will not be covered even if doctors are flown in from India.

The move is a reversal of three years ago when Britain effectively closed its doors to foreign doctors, claiming they weren't needed.

Then, Indian junior doctors had to leave the UK instead of taking up training posts.
