How did Health Servicd staff vote in the referendum?

As far as I can find out from my contacts and friends most of the traditional 3 generation staff have voted for remain. They are aware of the added on cost from the reduced value of the £ Stirling, and the dependence of the 4 services on overseas trained doctors and nurses.

But perversely, those from non EU countries, and especially those with other relatives who aspire to come to the UK, might have voted “leave”.

After all, with fewer EU citizens allowed in, and a permanent under capacity in doctor and nurse training, where will the deficit come from.

It would be interesting to know the answer.

About Roger Burns - retired GP

I am a retired GP and medical educator. I have supported patient participation throughout my career, and my practice, St Thomas; Surgery, has had a longstanding and active Patient Participation Group (PPG). I support the idea of Community Health Councils, although I feel they should be funded at arms length from government. I have taught GP trainees for 30 years, and been a Programme Director for GP training in Pembrokeshire 20 years. I served on the Pembrokeshire LHG and LHB for a total of 10 years. I completed an MBA in 1996, and I along with most others, never had an exit interview from any job in the NHS! I completed an MBA in 1996, and was a runner up for the Adam Smith prize for economy and efficiency in government in that year. This was owing to a suggestion (St Thomas' Mutual) that practices had incentives for saving by being allowed to buy rationed out services in the following year.
