Have you noticed how Hunt is trying to push himself forward as the voice of reason. Putting his name forward as next PM by any chance? Fiasco of PPE in 2017, ignoring Exercise Cygnus, Junior Drs? He has form!
He was also health minister when all the Tory cuts to the NHS were put through as well as causing a junior doctor strike & putting though the latest reorganisation of the NHS leading to more privatisation
No matter how much you pay people if they are routinely abused, work anti-social hours and are scapegoated/vilified in the press you are not going to be able to fill vacancies.
It seem to me that for decades UK Gov have relied on overseas Dr and nurses to fill gaps. While cutting training in UK. Not only has that taken proffesionals away from other countries it's allowed the underinvestment in UK talant. Well done EveryDoctor for your work.
