UK recruiting doctors from India

The BBC reports that the UK's National Health Service (NHS) is recruiting junior doctors from India in an attempt to head off a shortage caused by tighter immigration rules brought in over the last few years.

"We pulled the plug on overseas recruitment far too quickly," said Professor Derek Gallen, postgraduate dean of medical training for Wales.

"[We didn't] realise what the implications of that action would be two, three or four years down the line," he added.

The Welsh Deanery is one of four medical training schools across the UK which has been recruiting in India this year.

The medical training schools are trying to recruit in the areas of paediatrics, obstetrics, gynaecology, anaesthesia, as well as accident and emergency.

However, immigrating to the UK can be a difficult process. The good news is that for the right applicant,'s Migration and Move service can make the process much smoother.

If you are a highly skilled individual, the Migration and Move service can provide you with a visa that will enable you to work in the occupation of your choice. The service will also assist you with finding work, opening a bank account and finding a place to live.
