To say it’s a ‘UK Doctors Survey’ do you just need Anas Sarwar’s brother-in-law’ to respond? Part 2

Another small self-selecting survey from the Doctors’ Association UK claiming a UK-wide crisis in ‘The NHS.’

I’ve requested the full data with a breakdown showing which NHS the respondents are located in.

They made a similar claim in June, of a UK-wide shortage of ‘scrubs’ (PPE). I wrote then to ask for a breakdown but got no reply. Part 1 of the Sarwar Trilogy is here:

According to the Nuffield Trust, in 2019, there were 150 000 doctors in England:

So even if there were no respondents from beyond NHS England, only 1% responded and only 0.66% ‘want to quit.’

  1. I’m not sure why this is even news,,,

    Is it not natural for most people, and I have heard a rumour that doctors are people too, to WANT to quit their job when they’ve just been through a tough patch? Most people don’t, if it’s your profession, and the whole industry is going through the same thing, but I think it’s natural to express the desire to quit when things are tough.

  2. For the press in England,there is only one nation and one NHS.
    We might as well read about how doctors in France or Germany feel about things as having the same relevance to us Scots.
