We advise health and social care organisations and medical professionals on the full range of immigration needs.
Specialists in Immigration for Health & Social Care
DavidsonMorris is a modern legal services provider that specialises in providing value and solutions-based guidance on immigration law.
With the health and social care sector facing acute shortages of qualified medical staff across the board, nursing in particular is experiencing significant gaps between the supply and demand of trained professionals.
In response to this growing issue, qualified and experienced healthcare professionals are being recruited internationally to maintain NHS healthcare standards and ensure patient safety.
We work with independent care providers and NHS employers to advise on entry routes for overseas workers, including where exemptions under the Shortage Occupation List may apply.
We also support with guidance on meeting immigration compliance duties as part of the onboarding process and ongoing right to work checks. This includes areas of compliance risk such as List B management.
We also deliver training to in-house HR teams on immigration compliance and related matters.
We support health & social care employers to ensure their immigration processes are both effective and compliant.
Our health and social care immigration services include:
- Advice on Resident Labour Market Test
- Advice on the ‘Shortage Occuptation List’
