Abstract

One in ten NHS doctor posts are vacant – yet foreign-trained medics already make up nearly 29% of the workforce. Although Theresa May has said EU-born doctors working here may stay until enough Britons are trained to replace them, recruiting and keeping staff is likely to become more difficult because of the uncertainty surrounding their future immigration status. Victoria Simpkin says NHS workers need clarity now and any work permit scheme must give priority to shortage occupations in the NHS.
