The pandemic has often highlighted the flaws of the European and American healthcare systems, with many medics demanding more funding and better work conditions. It also highlighted one of the system's main flaw: the lack of nurses. In the UK alone, the NHS failed to fill the 40,000 nurse positions which were vacant before the pandemic – it is estimated that even more will be needed in the next few years. The country was heavily relying on foreign-trained nurses which, according to The Economist, accounts for 15% of the workforce. With Brexit looming ahead, how will Britain manage to cope?
