Are you a qualified nurse and keen to work overseas? If yes, you need to target the UK since, as per a report, the Walsall Healthcare NHS Trust is set to start a staffing campaign for the overseas nurses from inside and outside the European Union (EU).
While trained nurses, situated in the nations of EU and looking to do a job in the UK, are exempt from visa requirements, such professionals from the non-EU nations will typically need a Tier 2 Visa to proffer their professional services in the country.
At present, the Walsall Manor Hospital is facing a dearth of trained nurses, courtesy a national famine even as it has been powerless to draw a sufficient figure of the recently trained nurses.
The concerned board members at the Walsall Healthcare NHS Trust have sanctioned plans to kick-start an international employment drive, post learning that worker famines are negatively influencing the hospital operating processes and an incapability to assure safe staffing levels.
As expected, the UK has exited the EU. Now the nation has truly become an island. The latest development will make it even tougher to welcome in nurses. Earlier, one could, with no trouble, make use of the nurses having the citizenship of the EU nations.
Allegedly, it will be rather interesting to discover what will happen to UK immigration rule post the EU referendum. The EU referendum discussion is expected to have a long-term impact on the UK immigration strategy.
Tier 2 Visa Sponsorship
With a view to appoint skilled nurses from the non-EU nations, Walsall Manor Hospital requires to make use of individuals under the Tier 2 Sponsorship Licence structure legally binding for a period of four years and the Tier 2 Visa structure.
The Tier 2 Visa Sponsorship Licence arrangement was introduced in 2008, to further check and put a ceiling on the overseas movement made into Britain. The British firms require a Tier 2 Sponsorship Licence to provide sponsorship and utilize overseas manpower from outside of the EU on the Tier 2 Visas.
According to the incumbent Director of Nursing for Walsall Healthcare NHS Trust, despite the fact that the impact on the patient care is Walsall’s priority, one also has to keep in mind the effects on the organization’s existing labor force. The same impacts self-esteem and also generates a danger of the trust dropping its permanent workers.
Walsall Show Matters
Earlier this year, the organization was reportedly subjected to special steps by the Care Quality commission, which judged the Trust's show as insufficient.
The involved inspectors reportedly stated that it must guarantee that an ample figure of skilled personnel is obtainable across every specific service in the country.
