FICM signs letter to Home Secretary on Tier 2 visas

3 May 2018

With our colleagues at the BMA, NHS Employers and other Royal Colleges, the Faculty has written today to the new Home Secretary, Sajid Javid, to call for urgent review of the Tier 2 visa system and its impact on international doctors, nurses and members of the whole multiprofessional team working for our NHS.  The Faculty feels strongly that we need to have a visa system in place that protects patients by allowing Trusts and Health Boards to recruit the workforce they need to continue to run safe services.
