    Worrying isn't it?! Really bad considering the huge demand for physio's in the NHS!! I've been reading quite a bit about this recently, depending on what you read the situation looks different, it's definitley worse in England than the rest of the UK, but on the whole it's a UK wide problem.

    I suppose on the flip side 75% of the people surveyed did get jobs upon graduation, which is not too bad, but the government MUST do something to create more junior posts, otherwise a major shortage is going to take place in the near future! Especially when the situation for 2005 graduates looks even worse, only a third had jobs to go to when they graduate this summer!

    It's quite frightening considering the fact that a large proportion of new graduates are mature students and may well have mortgages, families etc to support..... or as in my case loans to repay! I for one will be willing to move anywhere in the UK for a junior post, but sadly not everyone has that option.

    I just hope they sort it out in the next couple of years or the situation looks pretty bleak for us!!!

    most of the problem is higher up. They have created lots of senior 1 posts but senior 2's are keen to take that step up either a) due to work load and not really an amazing financial incentive to so and b) they wnated to see how senior 1 posts will be banded under agenda for change. Because the senior 2's aren't moving up, the current juniors are not taking their place and therefore leaving places open to new graduates

    also, because of the lack of jobs in England, english gradutes are looking at wales, ireland and scotland for jobs which is increasing the pressure on the welsh, scottish and irish students who want to be getting jobs in their own country
