Together with other Italian doctors from Germany and Switzerland, we have analyzed the reasons for the medical exodus and what measures could be taken to encourage the return of those who wish. In particular, in order to ensure that qualifications and experience are adequately recognized, including through bureaucratic facilities and the strengthening of professional networks. The proposals put forward have taken into consideration the feedback of our members. Pending developments on how to exit the United Kingdom from the European Union, we propose to use all diplomatic and professional channels, which we have created and strengthened over the years, so that any problems may arise. In particular for the maintenance of a bi-directional flow of doctors who want to train or move to the United Kingdom, with all the side aspects that these flows determine.
