Want a weekend job? Willing to travel 12 hours? Try the NHS

We’ve all heard stories about the NHS. Here’s another one that makes you shake your head and wonder what they were thinking.

One of the doctors working in Aberdeen’s (Scotland) out of hours service travels a fair distance to get to work. Every Friday morning, he leaves his home in Poland, takes a flight to Glasgow, is picked up at the airport and driven four hours to Aberdeen, where he works the weekend covering the out-of-hours shift. The journey takes him 13 hours. This is on top of a full working week as a doctor in Poland.

Foolhardy? Or desperate? Read the full story here.

PS: All those stories that you hear about GP’s earning hundreds of thousands of pounds are false. Really.
