“Thousands of doctors planning to leave the NHS to work abroad”

So says the headline in the Daily Telegraph on 28 July 2014. Originally penned by Pulse magazine, the article uses the number of Certificates of Good Standing issued by the GMC to back up its claim that significant numbers of doctors are planning to leave the UK for places such as Australia, Canada and New Zealand.

We agree with the overall sentiment (and we are quoted within it, supporting the findings).

While Australia is the number one choice for UK GPs looking to get away from the burdens of the NHS, Canada is beginning to gain interest as well.  As it happens, we also recruit for there, so if that is of interest to you, then have a look at our sister site: http://www.overseasdoctorjobs.com/can/

The service I received from both Paul in the UK and from Monique and Martina in Australia was excellent. Initially I mainly was in contact with Paul whilst I was getting organised with registration which he helped with. He was extremely patient in answering all my questions. When I first arrived in Newcastle I was really pleased that Martina came to meet me there whilst she was visiting New South Wales (despite being based in Melbourne) and took me to my practice to meet everyone. I found this particularly helpful as I moved out here on my own knowing no-one so I was grateful to meet a friendly face. I’ve been here 5 months now and its definitely been one of the best things I’ve ever done.
