"Staff problems"

About: Burnley General Hospital

There seem to be some issues with getting doctors, mine has change 4 times in 2 years. One left for retirement after only being registered in the country for 7 months and was only in his mid forties. Are we expected to believe this? The latest one has only been registered in this country since the start of this year and appointments are already being altered. On the ELHT site there are no details of doctors experience, other hospitals (but not all) give details. Perhaps this says something about which hospitals to chose. Due to visit this month but I am asking for a change of hospital.
