star this property answer text <p>The Government recognises the need to be able to recruit effectively from abroad and the Immigration White Paper ‘The UK’s future skills-based immigration system’, published in December 2018, sets out the foundation for a single immigration system, where it is workers’ skills that matter, not where they come from.</p><p>This system will streamline the high-skilled visa route, by removing the Resident Labour Market Test and the Tier 2 Visa Cap. It will also include a new temporary immigration route for workers of all skill levels which will allow our social care sector to recruit care workers from abroad as we transition into the new system. The Home Office is undertaking a programme of engagement to discuss the proposed measures with colleagues across government and industry, to develop a future immigration system that works for the whole of the United Kingdom.</p><p>We also recognise the need to boost our domestic workforce as well. The NHS Long Term Plan sets out a vital strategic framework to ensure that, over the next ten years, the National Health Service will have the staff it needs so that nurses and doctors are working in a supportive culture that allows them to provide the expert compassionate care they are committed to providing.</p><p>Alongside this, the upcoming Social Care Green Paper will set out the Department’s proposals for reform of the sector to put it on a more sustainable future footing. This will include a vision for its workforce and proposals to boost recruitment and retention in the longer term.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Department continues to monitor and analyse overall staffing levels in the health and social care sectors and we have been monitoring leaver and joiner rates of European Union staff on a regular basis since the 2016 referendum. We are not complacent and have plans in place to ensure there will continue to be sufficient staff to deliver the high-quality services on which the public relies. Our overall programme of work is comprehensive, thorough and continuously updated and will stand irrespective of the terms in which the United Kingdom leaves the EU.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The White Paper sets out a new immigration system that will work in the interests of the United Kingdom. The future system will focus on high skills, welcoming talented and hardworking individuals that will support the UK’s dynamic economy, brilliant National Health Service and indispensable social care services.</p><p> </p><p>For skilled migrants there will be no cap on numbers. This will mean that all skilled roles – whether clinical or non-clinical – will benefit from the certainty that already exists for doctors and nurses, will give the NHS and social care providers the confidence that they will be able to bring in any suitably skilled migrant and enable the Government to process cases immediately. We will also abolish the Resident Labour Market Test for skilled workers – this will remove a month from the process of recruiting from overseas.</p><p> </p><p>We will also introduce a time limited route for temporary short-term workers of all skill levels. It is likely, however, that there could be some decrease in the flow of so called lower skilled workers from abroad. We know we need to redouble our efforts to promote jobs in the NHS and social care to the domestic workforce and we have has made improving the working lives of the millions of people who work in health and social care one of our top priorities, and why we have launched recruitment campaigns for both the NHS and social care. We are also clear that we want the 167,000 European Union nationals who currently work in the health and social care sectors to stay in the UK after we leave the EU, and in December 2018 they were able to apply for settled status early as part of the testing phase of the wider scheme.</p><p> </p><p>We continue to monitor and analyse overall staffing levels across the NHS and adult social care, including the impact of the proposed future immigration system.</p>
