I think Daveo and his med friends should be forced to stay and serve their country for at least 10 years after they graduate. If necessary, their passports should be revoked.
Passports revoked? The BMA would love that, and medics would be much more tempted to use their degree in well-paid specialities such as law, meaning that the £250,000 costs in training doctors would be completely wasted. Unfortunately for people who agree with the "forced to stay" theory, we can't force doctors to actually practice medicine when they actually have the degree.
