The Daily Mirror reports (30 Jun 2010) that according to the British Medical Association, the armed forces have "a chronic shortage of frontline medics with many forced to do repeated tours of duty in Afghanistan."

The strain is forcing doctors - there are 100 too few - out of the armed forces because of burn out from an overload of work, the British Medical Association warns today.

Dr Brendan McKeating at the BMA said the situation will only get worse because doctors were not given a 2% pay rise. He added: "They have had enough."
