The Drawbacks to a 48-hour Work Week

In England, it seems bureaucratic work limits might have drawbacks:
The survey showed significant under-reporting of hours worked by trainees as NHS Trusts struggle to meet the new restrictions.

It found only 25% of surgeons think their human resource departments accurately reflect their actual working hours.

And 85% come in to do surgery on their days off.

More than two-thirds reported a deterioration in the quality of training and operative skills as a result of the new working patterns.
When we adopt this policy, just make sure I get the day shift, okay?
