Medical staff needed in the UK - calls for UK visa relaxation

November -0001, 30

The chief executive of the NHS Foundation Trust Network in the UK has called on the government to relax the rules for UK visas for medical staff to ease the chronic shortage of skilled workers in this area.

It has emerged that 36% of trusts in UK hospitals have vacancies for consultant doctors and that this is placing pressure on the system. While many doctors are recruited from overseas, the visa and immigration rules are complex and bureaucratic. The NHS is asking for government support to help them increase numbers especially for immigrants from outside of the EU.

The health secretary Jeremy Hunt has refuted the claims and suggests that getting a visa to work in the UK is not difficult, however he has concerns that overseas doctors may not be properly qualified. He would prefer to see a home-grown workforce.

Despite these views, the UK government has set up a recruitment drive for medical workers in India.
