GP recruitment "proving extremely difficult"

Recruiting GPs is proving “extremely difficult” for a health board but its special measures status is not putting doctors off.
Dr Gareth Bowdler, Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board (BCUHB) area medical director, has told a Flintshire Council committee that hiring new doctors was tough and is “causing difficulties”.
The perception that the work load would be greater is hampering recruitment, Dr Bowdler said, rather than the health board being in special measures, which is seen as a “hospital problem”.
