Job shortfall for surgeons20th July 2006
Newly qualified consultants in surgery and medicine may be without jobs and consultants already in post are being asked to take redundancy as a result of the NHS financial crisis.
Figures from the Royal College of Surgeons show 35 ear, nose and throat specialists and 12 neuro-surgeons are facing unemployment. The Association of Surgeons in Training say there will be 57 trained cardiothoracic surgeons without work by the end of the year. The president of the Association, Conor Marron, said the savings were a 'false economy' since taxpayers had already paid £237,000 for each surgeon's training.
