Home Secretary: fix the visa system so the NHS gets the doctors we need

Tight controls are restricting the NHS's ability to recruit the doctors it needs. The Tier 2 visa system is for non-EU nationals and despite thousands of NHS vacancies, doctors are not currently prioritised as a shortage profession in the same way as nurses. This needs to change.

The Home Secretary has agreed to review these visa restrictions. Now we need to make sure this happens as quickly and as effectively as possible. That's why Conservative MP Heidi Allen and Liberal Democrat MP Norman Lamb have joined forces to generate as much support as possible from all political parties.

Ask your MP to write to the Home Secretary to make sure this happens.
