Romanian doctors will continue to leave abroad in 2011 as well because the phenomenon cannot be stopped but measures need to be take to at least decrease it, Health minister Cseke Attila declared quoted by the Romanian news agency Mediafax.

He said that in 2010 the Health ministry had more availability to release conformity certificates than in previous years. Of over 8000 foreign doctors in France in 2009, 16% were Belgian, 14% Romanian, 12% German, 10% Algerians and 8% Italians.
