Jeremy Hunt's GP recruitment pledge in tatters as 1,000 full-time NHS doctors quit last year | The Independent
Despite £20,000 incentives to attract trainees and attempts to hold on to senior staff, the NHS is now 1,200 GPs further away from its target of recruiting an extra 5,000 GPs by 2020 than when it was first set by Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt in September 2015.

The Department of Health baseline at that time was 34,592 full-time GPs, but two years on the September 2017 figures show overall numbers stand at 33,302. &!

What will cost more than lifting the public sector pay cap? Not lifting it | Faiza Shaheen | Opinion | The Guardian
[finding efficiencies ... ] Let’s start with costs of recruitment and retention. This is a big one. Job advertising isn’t cheap and new recruits take time to settle in. Last year, a study found there had been a 61% rise in advertising spend since 2010 in secondary schools alone, costing £56m in 2015. Shortages in the health service mean NHS Trusts are paying millions every month to agency and bank nurses to ensure there are adequate levels of staff on wards.

Stress-related leave has also increased in the public sector as workers are understandably getting run down working in understaffed schools and hospital wards. This is just staff – what about the costs to our children of being in classes too big for them to maximise their learning or to a sick individual who has an operation delayed?

Number of nurses and midwives falls for third year in a row - BBC News
The number of nurses and midwives registering to work in Scotland has fallen for the third year in a row.
There were 1,200 fewer registered in March of this year than in 2014.
Figures published by the Nursing Midwifery Council (NMC) show it is a UK-wide problem but Scotland has seen the biggest drop.
It has led to claims of poor morale in the profession where staff are "constantly being asked to do more with less".
And it has highlighted concerns about replacing the large number of people due to retire from nursing and midwifery.
