fewer Doctors = more Death

UK tax policy seems to be a factor in driving doctors to quit practicing.

Of course, if the doctors just reduced their fees, they could work as much as they liked without breaking any income limits.
Or they could keep charging as much as ever but donate, say, one third of it to charity and then they could still work as much as they liked without breaking any income limits and do a lot of good in the community.

Neither of these solutions seem to have occurred to the article's author.

Nor did they occur to the UK government which implemented the policy.

(1) How do you know that?

and, quite separately,
(2) Is it the government's job to maximise workers' incomes?

1) Psychic powers. 2). No, evidently in the UK its job is to minimize worker doctors' incomes.
