unstar this property answer text <p>The Government recognises the need for the National Health Service to be able to continue to recruit effectively from abroad when freedom of movement ends. 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. This system will remove the cap on skilled migrants, abolish the requirement to undertake a Resident Labour Market Test and significantly improve the timeliness of being able to apply for a visa.</p><p>Additionally, legislation introduced on 7 March 2019 means health and care professionals with professional qualifications from European Union and Swiss institutions who are currently registered can continue to practise in the United Kingdom as they do now, guaranteeing their ability to work in the NHS.</p><p> </p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>Local authorities are responsible for assessing local substance misuse need, and commissioning services to meet that need, including inpatient medically-staffed detoxification beds in England. Local areas can work together to commission some types of drug and alcohol treatment which may be more effectively commissioned by partnerships of more than one locality.
