The Commons Health Select Committee is asking the public to submit evidence regarding visa problems that may have affected GP recruitment or employment.

It has issued the request following a letter sent by the Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt regarding non-EEA General Practitioner Visa regulation. In it, Mr Hunt asks the Committee if it has any evidence to submit as part of the Brexit process regarding the current legislation and process on sponsorships for non-EEA GPs, through Tier 2 Visas. The letter also describes some circumstances in which an applicant may be asked to leave the UK.

In preparing its response, the Committee “is inviting the public to submit examples of cases where the process which the Secretary of State sets out in his letter is not working as planned (ie cases where the process is resulting in non-EEA overseas GPs leaving the UK or where delays are preventing doctors from taking up positions in the NHS).

“The Committee will send details of any relevant cases to the Secretary of State so that his officials can look into it, as he has promised.” It adds that any examples submitted will be used “as evidence that the process itself needs to be looked at again, and not to prompt any examination or re-examination of individual cases.”

Any relevant information can be emailed to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or sent by post to: Health Committee, House of Commons, London, SW1A 0AA.
