GPs say ‘show me the money’

GPs in the UK are being offered a £20,000 (A$34,000) incentive to take up posts in an area that’s in desperate need of more doctors, according to The BMJ.

A far cry from Australia’s remote bush locations, the bustling city of Leicester in the East Midlands of England has suffered a shortage of GPs for years.

Now local authorities have offered cash to GPs who are new to Leicester and who take at least a part time post for a minimum of two years.
