Healthcare worker shortage as a result of covid ?!

    A random thought just popped into my head about covid that is pretty worrying..

    careers in health, such as doctor, nurse, physiotherapist, psychologist, carer most of which have been pretty popular or desirable careers are going forward seem likely to have lost a shed load of appeal.....

    imagine as all or most of the positions above will spend time working in cramped A&E’s start with, busy wards afterwards... the risk vaccinated or otherwise would be significant....

    will we start as I believe to see a decline of people whom will want to see themselves work in a medical field ? In 5-10 years will there be shortages of applicants as well as people working in health who will just leave.. ? Retire early or seek other avenues of employment ?

    that could leave us as a society...donald ducked... working in healthcare might become as appealing as shïtting a grapefruit..

    vaccinated or not there would be significant risks.. and if we have significant shortfalls in healthcare staff !
