Doctors who leave for better pay a disgrace

It was much to my dismay that I read in the news this week that A&E departments will be closing due to a shortage of doctors.

It appears that this shortage can be attributed to doctors who, after being trained here at huge cost to the State, opt to take more financially attractive posts in other countries.

To be willing to ignore the suffering of your fellow citizens on trolleys in A&E for the promise of higher financial reward is, frankly, a sad reflection on their motivations.
