PR dla Zagranicy
Britain’s National Health Service (NHS) is seeking to recruit hundreds of general practitioners from Poland as well as other EU countries such as Lithuania and Greece, Polish daily Rzeczpospolita has reported.
According to Britain’s The Telegraph newspaper, a new scheme by the British publicly-funded health service will see doctors from across the European Union undergo 12 weeks of paid training at a campus in Poland before they start work in Britain.
Recruits are being offered handsome salaries of GBP 90,000 (EUR 102,000, USD 108,000) a year, as well as generous relocation packages in a bid to plug shortages of medical staff in Britain and help remedy a crisis in that country’s health service, media reports say.
Doctors from Poland as well as Croatia, Lithuania, Greece, Spain and have already been recruited as part of a plan to bring 500 GPs from various European countries to Britain ahead of the country’s divorce with the EU, according to The Telegraph. (str/pk)
