This PhD student from Pakistan is studying at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. Conversely, many medical doctors who had trained in South Asian countries came to Britain in the 1960s to fill vacancies in the expanding NHS. Ironically, it was Enoch Powell who, as Health Minister, encouraged the recruitment of Asian and African doctors to meet demands for medical staff. Today around a quarter of Britain's medical workforce comes from countries like Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka.
