Hiring Trained Professionals from Developing Country Should Be Stopped

Andy Kerr, the health minister of Scotland set out guidelines that through NHS it would stop alluring health workers from the poorest parts of the world. In such places the people are desperate and are attracted by the job offers. // It was said that they would stop doctors, nurses and other health professionals from filling the many vacancies in the NHS.

They would also put a strict surveillance regarding the issue and put an end to active recruitment. The hiring of trained professionals has caused problems in many of the world's poorest countries. In Malawi last year, Jack McConnell, the first minister said that the pay rate in Scotland is sixty times more when compared to the African country’s pay scale. A doctor compared the scenario to that of the colonial approach where the Europeans now are going to Africa to mine for nurses.

The Royal College of Nursing said that according to the statistics sub-Saharan Africa has 25% of the world's disease cases, but only 1.3% of the healthcare workforce to tend to the patients. To top it all in the year 2003 about one-quarter of the overseas-trained nurses recruited to the UK are from Africa. Mr Kerr appreciated that today healthcare is looked upon as an international marketplace. He also said that it is good news that NHS Scotland is an attractive place to work, and has applications for employment from candidates around the world.

But at the same time care should be taken that one should not take away the essential work force and resources from the developing countries but rather help them to excel in the field of healthcare. Hence to prevent one from crossing the limit ethics are essential during the recruitment processes. They set a standard code that no active recruitment will take place from developing countries which should be meticulously followed by all international recruitment.
