Member for Eastleigh pointed out with a scholarly knowledge of eighth century Arabia, throughout recorded history there has been a fairly sustained international migration of scientists, scholars and artists, and particularly, I suppose, of soldiers and sailors. This has gone on throughout history, and until very recently it has been assumed to be a thoroughly healthy and desirable thing. Member for Billericay (Mr. Moonman) said that there had been no academic research on this. A lot of work has been done on this, particularly by the Canadians who have had this problem with them for a very long time. Members have spoken about the lack of research into the problems of emigration.
- It may be that Ministers in the past few years can be blamed for this, too, because we have not enough information.
- It would have been easier to support such a Motion wholeheartedly, because we must encourage people to come.
- I believe that we will find a whole host of minor petty irritants which would not cost a tremendous amount of money to remove.
- Almost 200m people – 20 per cent of the population – have private insurance.
- Scientists feel that their services are not being used fruitfully.
That brings me to a point I want to emphasise about the nursing services. I have for many years known something about the work of the Queen’s Institute in this country and in Scotland. There is a no more devoted body of women throughout this country than the Queen’s Nurses. In the West of Scotland they have to proceed sometimes in the most appalling weather, under inadequate arrangements for comfort and transport, to get to a case. I have given most careful consideration to the case of the voluntary hospitals.
National Health Service Bill
Member for Watford (Mr. Raphael Tuck) considers that a refund should be paid to the community by individuals who remain abroad. He did not suggest any possible answer to the obvious question; and I am, therefore, forced to wonder how on earth any Government could regain that money from people who have gone abroad. If our community is paying—as it often is; and many hope that it will pay fully—for the education of its young people, the community has the right to expect that the results of that education will finally be directed to and used in the community’s service. It was expected that if he did not do so, the money spent on that scholarship would be refundable by him. I am not suggesting that there should be compulsion.
I beg the Minister to do what he can to maintain that standard and to keep the Queen’s Institute as the authority. I also believe that we must concentrate on the prevention of disease in this period, and, as the Minister said, do all we can for maternity and child welfare and for children in schools. In due course, let us hope we shall achieve for the adults of this country a medical service carried out, not by ignorant people, not by bureaucrats, but by those best competent to judge. I hope that the Minister will agree with what was said by an hon.
If it is given the opportunity to expand, if we are to provide the opportunities that will attract the people about whom we are talking it will require a fundamental difference in approach on the part of the Government. Without it more and more people we cannot afford to lose will opt out. I am talking about the sort of society which I would describe in the phrase “an entrepreneurial society”. The reason why people like myself would stay in the country and try to bring back the sort betterdoctor api of entrepreneurial society which is being destroyed by hon. Members opposite is that we believe that it is better to say here and fight it out than to opt to go to America and give in. I want to deal with three areas in which I believe positive steps could be taken in order to improve our ability to train and keep people in this country. I appreciate that I can only touch upon three fairly specific cases, and that there are a large number of other cases of equal value which hon.
We all regret that the debate cannot go on longer so that we might hear more contributions from both sides. Over the last 18 months, in my own constituency alone, I have lost five general practitioners who have emigrated to Canada, Australia or New Zealand.
The course was on ethics in engineering and the MOO (MUD, Object Oriented… MUD stands for Multi User Dimension) was simply a tool to allow anonymity so we could study its effects but the MOO was programmable betterdoctor api and interactive. The whole year spent a great deal of their time chatting with other students through the MOO and writing programs that were not part of their course work to show off to their friends.
Too seldom is a scientist in this country given an opportunity in that age range. It is only too true, even today, that for some reason, in society generally and in industry, the engineer does not have the status to which he is entitled. In my opinion far too few are put on subsidiary boards, where they could learn management and broaden their knowledge of industry in general, or on the boards of companies generally. In Switzerland, West Germany and the United States, on almost every public company one finds a generous representation of scientific and engineering talent. Of too few companies in this country is this true.
I would like every boy or girl who wants to become a doctor to be given the opportunity to do so, provided that he has the qualifications. There is no lack of recruits wanting to become doctors. What ever the crisis may be, plenty of young people are queueing up to become doctors. During this time, dissatisfaction among doctors about conditions of work and rates of pay was gradually developing and growing. This is not something which has just happened in the last few years under a Labour Government.

It a spirit of adventure could pervade the whole of our scientific and academic endeavour, the situation would be very different. Gentlemen opposite have a puritanical attitude towards high earnings and in the implementation of the incomes policy they have created the impression that that policy is aimed at keeping wages down. We, on the other hand, believe that Government policy should be designed to push wages up.
The emphasis of the debate where it has concerned doctors has been in the wrong place. Instead of deploring the loss of 350 doctors a year, we should be putting our own Health Service in order. The solution to the doctor shortage is not hastily to pull back the 350 who are leaving. If a bucket is leaking and one cannot mend the hole, the answer is to turn the tap on more fully. I notice that the Opposition, probably deliberately, have not said a great deal about the doctor shortage, because they would find it embarrassing if they did. Have they forgotten the Willink Committee set up in 1955 by the Conservative Government for the very purpose of estimating the number of medical practitioners that would be needed in the future and therefore the number of medical students to be trained?
Better Doctor Apicall_
The question is whether there would be some advantage in having a more widespread one on a voluntary basis. There is no question of people being compelled to fill in the forms. It is a question of whether we should try to keep an eye on those who have gone abroad and make it easier to encourage some of them to return. In addition, the House will have seen that recently my Department financed a special mission directed at British graduates from American business schools. Mr. Catherwood, the Director-General of the N.E.D.C., who has recently been over there, reported that about 90 per cent.
But let me describe how the local cottage hospitals work. They have every year an annual general software development blog open meeting to which anyone can go. It is not necessary to subscribe in order to go.
Introducing Healthcare Api
We all know that in many cases, in a county borough, the large hospital in that borough serves not only the borough but the surrounding county districts as well. If we had a local authority hospital service we should have to have joint boards. That being so, I think it is much better to have a clearly defined region.
He has drawn attention to the fact that 10 per cent. of the members of the Royal Society were born overseas, to the fact that the immediate Past President of the Royal Society, the present Chief Scientific Adviser to the Government and the Chairman of the Council for Scientific Policy were all born overseas, and hon. Members will have seen the remarks of Lord Fulton, the Vice-Chancellor of Sussex University, when he said that no fewer than 60 per cent. of the people holding appointments in Sussex University had worked overseas. It is impossible to go round the British universities today without finding a considerable number of people in every university who were born overseas or who have held overseas jobs. So that one has to remember, when discussing the outward flow, that there is also a very considerable return movement, an inward flow.
Member would like to be put in a corner and forced to say what precisely is the acceptable level in any talent. There is a certain intuitive “feel” that in some parameters we have exceeded that level. I am sure that the Secretary of State for Education and Science will join me ill regretting that such a number of hon. Members on both sides have been excluded from the debate. He and I agreed earlier to try to cut down our winding up speeches and to give an opportunity for at least one extra hon.
In spite of the fact that the families may change, inevitably the hospital will continue to have housemen and junior registrars, and a 698large number of those will be married and have families. Although the actual families may change, the problem remains, and even a temporary solution along the lines adopted by Barnet would be more helpful in seeking to solve the present problem. Coming to keep the patients informed, help the coexistence of healthcare provider and improving patient-doctor relationships, APIs will undoubtedly the future of the healthcare industry. Mostly the online businesses realize the importance of APIs to expand globally for their operations in the future. Now if the healthcare industry follows the same path, there will be significant positive impacts on the cost and quality of the patient care, experience and innovative development in the future.
Furthermore, it gives no backing to the doctor in the form of specialist services. committee to represent the particular interests of junior hospital doctors in discussing the problem. Thus, hospital authorities have been faced with a need for more residential accommodation, and a greater proportion of this as married betterdoctor api accommodation. As there are likely to be fewer blockbuster drugs in future, multichannel marketing strategies, using digital media, which is cheaper, can bring the pharmaceutical companies greater ROI. Brazil has almost 76 million people connected to the internet, equivalent to 37.4 per cent of the population.
I believe that we should look at these people—teachers, nurses, probation officers, social workers and, what is relevant to this debate, scientists. Gentlemen opposite do not know how scientists feel. The majority of scientists are among the least interested in pure profit motive and pure gain.
Gentlemen opposite—and the right hon. and learned Member for Wirral (Mr. Selwyn Lloyd)—were busily engaged in reducing Surtax. This was the period when the brain drain began to be a serious factor. That is one reason for thinking the problem can become more serious. The other reason for thinking that it could be aggravated is the conclusions of the Swann Report, which showed a very marked unbalance, in the employment of scientists and engineers, between universities on the one hand and industry on the other.
