New research reveals that 85% of hospital doctors think that working for the NHS offers them great opportunities for career progression. That’s according to a poll of 1300 visitors to the Remedium Partners website, a consultancy which specialises in the recruitment of overseas permanent doctors to ease the NHS’ reliance on agency locums.
The survey, which asked medical professionals to select what they felt were the main advantages of being employed by the NHS, also reveals that 42% of respondents felt the training and CPD they received was a notable benefit.
The same number believe that their lifestyle as a doctor in the UK was a perk of the job, and a further 28% said that learning new skills is proving to be a key advantage. Other significant benefits for respondents include the fact that they are working for such a reputable healthcare system and can access the UK’s education system.
