Doctor who?

Apparently, Jeremy Hunt thinks he can bring an end to the NHS' reliance on overseas doctors simply by announcing that medical schools will be able to offer more places. However, it's one thing to create new places, and quite another to actually fill them. If he does want to hold out any hope of doing so, it might be wise to stop bullying and berating medics and actually listen to what they have to say. At present, signing up for a career in medicine is akin to volunteering to become Hunt's personal punchbag.
