Indian hospital wants British docs
For the first time an India-based hospital has launched a recruitment drive in Britain to hire doctors who can interact and treat British patients who are flocking to India for fast and cheap treatment. Some companies have been doing brisk business for the past few years arranging the medical treatment of British patients in India by offering a single-window facility - by which the patients are taken care of right from their travel from Britain to India and back after treatment and recovery.
According to the Birmingham-based 'Sunday Mercury', the Kolkata-based private AMRI (Advanced Medicare and Research Institute) Hospital has enlisted the help of a Midlands-based doctor "to tempt British-trained medics to move to India."
The newspaper quoted a former consultant with the National Health Service (NHS), Dilip Roy, from Stourbridge, as saying that he had already helped a young doctor from Leeds to get a job with AMRI.
