    Lots of use of the word 'could' in here. No use of actual FACTS. As for blaming recruitment problems on Brexit that is using one thing to mask the inability to do ones job properly. Isn't recruitment basically the economics of supply and demand. If you make the job attractive to do, pay benefits, etc. then you will find people willing to do it.

    I am sure everyone on here has their price for cleaning public toilets.
    The OP didn't claim it as a fact, but as as possible scenario. Whereas the brexiteer's only scenario is unicorns and re-establishing the Victorian empire

    Exclusive: Warnings revealed in notes on contingency plans for NHS Scotland and Wales

    A no-deal Brexit could mean cancelled operations, delays in diagnoses and long-term pressure on staffing numbers, private letters and briefing notes seen by the Guardian have revealed.

    The set of 30 documents released under freedom of information requests provide a detailed portrait of contingency planning for Brexit in NHS Scotland and Wales.

    They warn that it could take years to train enough staff to replace departing EU nationals, increasing the burden on the health service at a time when staff shortages are already starting to bite.

    And they suggest that if vital medical supplies are held up the consequences for patients could be serious.

    The warning on staffing shortages comes from a Welsh government document entitled “high-level summary” for Welsh health and social care services post-Brexit.

    It says Brexit is “having an impact already on the recruitment and retention of EU nationals” and says the issue is most likely to affect “less skilled staff”.

    Not to worry - people can just move to EU and get nice free medical attention there. Oh wait...
