(asked on 17th November 2021) - View Source

Question to the Department of Health and Social Care:

To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the reply by Lord Kamall on 16 November (HL Deb, cols. 158-160), what assessment they have made of the number of NHS doctors who are likely to retire between 2021 and 2024.

An assessment of future expected retirement rates for National Health Service doctors is complex. Retirement is a personal choice and an individual may choose to retire for a range of reasons. While it is not possible to isolate a single factor which motivates retirement, we continue to monitor retirement patterns of doctors in the NHS.
