Outsourcing Healthcare: England has been recruiting doctors from outside the UK for some time to make up for a physician shortage and cut down on patient waiting times. Matthew Holt notes that some of those recruits are American. He notes that most of them are either doctors who "hit a glass ceiling" or those at the end of their career, but not newly minted doctors. I suppose moving to England and getting paid a salary would be appealing to doctors who are no longer working to support their families. I'm betting most of them are of the near-retirement variety. It would be interesting to know the age break-down and their reasons for signing up.
