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 healthcare standards and ensure patient safety.
We offer the full range of immigration services to independent and public health & social care providers, with particular expertise in sponsorship licences, Tier 2 visas and Right to Work compliance.
We have substantial experience helping independent care providers recruit non-EEA nurses under the Tier 2 visa scheme, and have been actively involved in lobbying for change to make the current foreign nurse pre-registration process fit for purpose. .
We work with healthcare providers in the NHS and private sector, providing support and 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’
- 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
For individual medical professionals we advise on migration and settlement options, including eligibility for appropriate categories of visa.
We manage the entire application process on your behalf to avoid the risk of delays and loss fees resulting from application or procedural errors. We can also advise on entry and settlement options for dependants.
For BMA members we deliver advice and support specifically on applications for Tier 2 (General) visas for entry into the UK.
