The NHS is facing a huge burden from female doctors who will want to have children and only work part-time, an MP has claimed.
Tory Anne McIntosh (Thirsk and Malton) said that "in the normal course of events" the 70% of medical students who are women will want to marry, start families and then go part-time.
The qualified lawyer said this puts a strain on the NHS and creates a "tremendous burden" in training female doctors who will not end up working full-time hours.
