    I'm not bloody surprised that the normal pool of NHS workers are choosing to do something else given that kick in the teeth.

    Brexit has little to do with it.
    very good point.

      That's where many British to-be nurses also go to get their training as there is a severe shortage of places in the UK. Once abroad, they tend to stay and work abroad once finished with their education. It is not only the UK that needs nurses, and they are paid 75% in places like Norway.

        We aren't yet - we are number 3 - but we are getting there.

          Brexit will have an upward effect on average UK BMI, as thinner people will be more likely to emigrate and less likely to immigrate.

          Interesting starting point here. http://blogs.lse.ac.uk/brexit/2016/0...igher-obesity/

            Perhaps it's all those refugees bringing down the European average?
