NHS employers monitor the adherence of trusts and commercial recruitment agencies used by the national health service to the principles of the code of practice for the international recruitment of healthcare professionals.

The code of practice proscribes the active recruitment of healthcare professionals from developing countries listed on the NHS Employers website, regardless of their nationality or country of qualification.
