TORY A&E CRISIS: deterring doctors going into emergency medicine – Gwynne

1269756_emergency__doctors__surgeonsCommenting on doctors being paid as much as £3,000 a shift, Andrew Gwynne MP, Labour’s Shadow Health Minister, said:

“David Cameron’s A&E crisis is deterring newly qualified doctors from going into emergency medicine.

“Top A&E doctors warned the Prime Minister of a looming recruitment crisis but he ignored their pleas. He’s left the NHS with a dangerous shortage of A&E doctors and a bill for locums which is now spiralling out of control.

“This is an A&E crisis of the Government’s own making. They are paying more for an A&E service which is getting worse by the week. And things have got so bad that many doctors are deciding to quit.

“Ministers must urgently take action to bring down the bill for locum doctors.”
