No, not literally all of them. Just far, far more than you can afford to do so.

Unfortunately there are lots of people who disagree with your assessment of "fair", which is probably why there is no pool of patriotic citizens with the requisite skills who can step in, and there are no robots which can do a doctor's job. At present, in reality, Britain isn't producing enough doctors even with the current incentive structure. I think the speed with which you resort to threats of punishment is probably symptomatic of exactly why this idea of enforced equality of outcome fails in practice.

For the record, a typical doctor is not paid a six figure salary in the UK.

There's also the secondary problem of what happens to economies that do not even strive to allocate resources efficiently, in accordance with the value they present to society.
