Immigration in healthcare


Migrant workers make up a significant proportion of the UK’s independent health and social care workforce, with many workers from outside of the European Economic Area (EEA). Furthermore, Brexit will end free movement for EEA nationals on 31 December 2020. As a result there will be a new Immigration System from January 2021 which will treat EEA and non-EEA workers equally. The visa requirements will have a large impact on the UK’s workforce and for organisations when planning recruitment of migrant workers.

Organisations will require a UKVI approved sponsor licence to recruit any non UK national requiring work permission. Furthermore, organisations must also maintain compliance and comply with their duties as to the UKVI as a sponsor licence holder. We can assist you through our low-cost products some of which are below. We are also able to provide bespoke immigration advice where required, please get in touch and we will advise if we can assist.
