Pressing Need for Additional Staff Consultants at NHS

Inspite of the continuous demands for additional staff, the count of consultants employed in Scotland's hospitals went up by less than 1% in three months//. The British Medical Association has indicated that the replenishment hardly compensates for the consultant vacancies in the Scotland Health Service. From the recent figures published, it is evident that the number of full time specialists in the NHS is inadequate to meet the growing demands.

Clive Davis, chairman of the BMA's Scottish consultants committee, said: "The increase of 16.8 is a step in the right direction but it's not nearly enough to fill the gap of around 300 consultant vacancies. Only today, leaders of the medical royal colleges claimed a 70% increase in the number of consultants was needed to provide an NHS fit for the future; today's increase of 0.5% in the last quarter shows just how far we are from our goal."

A recent check revealed that more than 50% of the consultants were working much more than the mandated number of hours. Mr Davis added,” Clearly, there's a need to expand consultant numbers: Scotland also has more consultants per head of population than England - 71 per 100,000 population compared to England's 60 per 100,000 population. We announced in March changes to the way services were delivered meant we needed to replan how many consultants would be needed."
