DavidsonMorris is a modern legal services provider that specialises in providing value and solutions-based guidance on immigration law.

As immigration legal advisers to the British Medical Association and NHS organisations across the UK, we advise healthcare employers and medical professionals on their immigration needs.

Faced with acute shortages of staff, qualified and experienced healthcare professionals are being recruited internationally to maintain NHS healthcare standards and ensure patient safety.

We are able to advise medical professionals on migration options and the most appropriate category of visa, as well as immigration applications and procedures.

We also provide BMA members with advice and support on applications for Tier 2 (General) visas for entry into the UK.

We support NHS trusts and organisations to ensure their immigration processes are both effective and compliant.

Our healthcare immigration services include:

  • Advice on Resident Labour Market Test
  • Advice on the ‘Shortage Occuptation List’
  • Applying for new or renewing PBS licences
  • In-house training and development on immigration and right to work compliance
  • Advice and guidance on Home Office audits

We also deliver a regular programme of legal updates and webinars covering compliance training, mobility trends and relevant topics regarding visa and immigration for the NHS.
