BBC has released a shocking and depressing video report of employment situation in UK after PLAB 2 exam. Jackie Long, BBC correspondent has come up with this report which covers the current situation of unemployment, realities of the living conditions in UK and the coaching institutes for plab exam.

Every PLAB 2 aspirant must watch this video which is also available in the PLAB 2 download section of the RxPG website.

Here are the excerpts from the video: "Around a third of junior doctors working in our hospitals are believed to have come from overseas. The word is out that British government Ministers believe that, in the short term, NHS shortages can only be met by importing expertise.

Yet, remarkably, many of the foreign doctors who think they're answering the call end up unemployed and living in slums here. Jackie Long reported"

We at rxpg has been reporting these ground realities ever since november 2003. Now the major national and international media has noticed this problem and the unemployment issue for overseas doctors has become a big issue. GMC has also noticed this problem and there is a standing committee set up by GMC to review the whole plab exam (as rxpg has informed you in an earlier news article). This committee is due to give its report in the month of december.

According to the current BBC video report there are currently 3,000 to 8,000 unemployed overseas doctors in UK.
