By Rufiz Hafizoglu - Trend:

Around 2500 Turkish doctors working abroad will return home, Turkish health Minister Mehmet Muezzinoglu was quoted today by Turkish newspaper Sabah as saying.

"Currently, all the conditions have been created in Turkey to provide local staff with jobs," he said.

Earlier, Muezzinoglu said that Ankara urges Turkish doctors to return home due to an acute shortage of doctors in the country. Turkey needs more than 20,000.
