U.K. National Health Service Poised for Glut of Doctors, FT Says

March 31 (Bloomberg) -- The U.K.’s National Health Service will have an oversupply of as many as 20,000 doctors by the end of the decade, pressuring medical professionals to accept lower-paid roles or seek work abroad, the Financial Times said.

The number of medical students and junior doctors qualifying as consultants will increase to 60,000 by 2020 from 40,000 today, the newspaper said, citing a report published by the Centre for Workforce Intelligence.
