Would you move abroad to practice as a GP?

Medicine is a truly global profession; in every country in the world, there will always be a need for GPs and other healthcare workers. But would you move abroad to work as a GP?

Many GPs in the UK are at risk of burning out, and the contentious changes to the NHS currently being implemented may well persuade many to see GP jobs elsewhere

Yet there are others who feel the best way to achieve seismic shifts in the NHS is to stay in the country and continue with their existing GP jobs. Some might avoid moving due to homesickness or other practical family reasons.

What do you think? Is a GP's situation in the UK is in terminal decline? Would you be willing to relocate?  Please vote in the poll below and leave a comment if you wish - we'd love to know your thoughts.
