The article reports on the statement issued by Steve Barnett, director of the Great Britain National Health Service (NHS) Employers, that the NHS must decide where it stands on the recruitment of foreign doctors as it looks to solve the problems surrounding junior doctors' training posts. Some 4,000 doctors trained in Great Britain were left without posts when the 2007 recruitment round ended in August 2007. Barnett questioned whether they should have got preference over non-European Union applicants to protect the investment of British taxpayers.
