The NHS: We need more IMGs

  • March 08, 2019

Recent NHS reports have recently revealed that the NHS’ staffing crisis is so severe that it could be short of 350,000 key personnel by 2030.

The current analysis of the NHS’ system reveals that the visible lack of doctors and nurses is increasing daily – calling for IMGs and international nurses now more than ever.

“Unless new NHS staff can quickly be recruited and trained, the NHS simply will not have the workers available to meet the demand for healthcare expected over the next decade”.

Currently, the NHS needs 10,000 doctors and 40,000 nurses. However, research reveals that the gap between staff needed and the number available could reach almost 250,000 by 2020. A lack of 250,000 staff would mean that about one in six of all NHS posts were unfilled.
