DoctorsA leaked draft government document predicts that the NHS will experience a surplus of hospital consultants by 2010-11 and a shortage of GPs, nurses and junior doctors.

The draft, which was leaked to the Health Service Journal forecasts that there will be 3,200 extra consultants the NHS can't afford to employ. We'd like to hear from Hospital Consultants and health professionals about your own experiences.

Are consultants already finding it difficult to get jobs? Will hospitals need fewer consultants by 2011? What are your views about creating a sub-consultant grade, and payment by performance?
