We will deliver on the people’s priorities by introducing a new NHS Visa for certain qualified health professionals, offering fast-track entry, reduced visa fees and dedicated support to come to the UK with their families.

Care workers who meet the relevant criteria, including a skills and salary threshold, with a confirmed job offer working for the NHS or providing services to the NHS, will be able to benefit from this offer.

Further details will be published in due course.
