Speak up for overseas doctors

From Dr Kamalpreet Sidhu

Newcastle upon Tyne

After the recent changes in immigration rules for overseas doctors, they have been left in complete confusion and chaos.

BMA efforts to get a grace period for doctors in training don't seem to be yielding any results and have died down.

The Home Office has been sending contradictory messages regarding visa rules, with refusals for the highly skilled migrant programme visa, citing contradictory reasons. The UK is losing its credibility among medical graduates from Asian countries. Please write to your MP against this injustice.
