Nigerian doctors who are planning to relocate to foreign countries like the United Kingdom are being cautioned by the Federal Government to reconsider their plans.
According to the Federal Minister of Health, Osagie Ehanire, these doctors will not be receiving hazard allowances.
He made this known at the Presidential Task Force (PTF) were he said;
“Now, this UK where they are going to, there’s no hazard allowance. They don’t give doctors hazard allowance. You just get your salary, that’s all. I’ve spoken to doctors there and they said it’s part of their job, part of what they’re trained for.
But here, apart from your salary, we still try to add something to it in the hope that we’re going to attract our people to stay. The experience and cutting-edge knowledge and skills they bring from abroad.”
