The article, GMC Figures Reveal 12% Increase in Doctors Considering Working Abroad, published 28th June in Pulse, reveals that the number of UK doctors applying to the GMC for certificates that enable them to work abroad has risen over the past 5 years. Popular destinations for travelling GPs include Australia, New Zealand and Canada. Whilst official figures for the numbers of doctors moving overseas are not kept, Paul Brooks, Managing Director of overseas recruitment agency EU Health Staff, claims this figure is climbing as doctors look to “escape the NHS bureaucracy and unwelcome changes to the way things are being run.”

A representative from the firm reflects on why some UK professionals make the decision to work overseas.

“Different countries offer different advantages for different professions. Doctors for example might prefer the lighter workload and relaxed procedures of Australia, whilst teachers in Spain benefit from longer holidays and good weather. Those thinking about making the move would be wise to research thoroughly the aspects of their career that may differ abroad, such as working hours, facilities and regulations. It may also help to browse first-hand accounts from those who have already moved.”
