Health and care visa

The Home Office has given details of a fast-track entry system for doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals.
Most care workers will not be covered by the scheme though.

Applicants via this route will still have to meet the relevant skill level and salary thresholds.

It is important for you to inform your candidates in progress and placed that they should apply for their European Temporary Leave to Remain status. They can do so by following this UKGOV link: https://www.gov.uk/settled-status-eu-citizens-families
