"Britain’s National Health Service has long relied on skilled foreign doctors to meet staffing shortfalls, and foreigners have long been drawn to its relatively generous salaries and exacting standards of training. Of the nearly 239,000 doctors registered with the General Medical Council, some 90,000 qualified in countries other than the United Kingdom." (The New York Times)
"Of the [Australia's] 50,000 doctors, 20,000 are foreign-born, said Andrew Schwartz, president of the Australian Doctors Trained Overseas Association." (London Telegraph)
Sure national health care seems to be an even better idea than night baseball - at first pass (and if you've never had to rely on one of these "universal" systems).
Ignoring for a moment all the delays, the lack of any really investigate diagnosis, etc., what happens when Britain and Australia can no longer exploit developing-world doctors?
