Dunne welcomes proposals to lift visa cap on doctors and nurses coming to work in the NHS

19th June 2018

Philip Dunne welcomes the Government announcement on NHS funding and also the Home Office’s new proposals to lift the visa cap on professional clinicians which will enable effective workforce planning in the NHS.

While I welcome yesterday’s announcement and the workforce strategy that is coming out in the autumn, will the Minister comment on the Home Office’s new proposals to allow greater flexibility for professional clinicians coming to work in the UK, and on what impact that might have on filling vacancies?

My hon. Friend is right to draw attention both to the Home Office’s welcome announcement on tier 2 visas and to the work on the workforce strategy, in which he played a key role. It will ensure that we have the right workforce for the NHS for the next 10 years.
