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 the 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> more like this

star this property answer text <p>In the development of each national tariff, NHS England and NHS Improvement undertakes an overall assessment of the impact of proposals. While this provides an overall assessment of impact, detailed feedback on proposed prices for individual HRGs (units of healthcare) is sought from clinical Expert Working Groups (EWGs). This is to ensure that the published tariff supports clinical practice.</p><p>For the 2017/19 tariff (set for two years), the prices for BZ91 were increased following EWG feedback. However, for the 2019/20 tariff the EWG advised that increasing the prices was no longer appropriate. The EWG felt that there had been a significant change in clinical practice since the 2017/19 prices were set, with a shift to performing minimally invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS), which are significantly cheaper, rather than open/tube glaucoma procedures. Based on diagnosis and procedure codes entered into patient records, MIGS activity is assigned to the HRG BZ91. However, the current codes do not allow differentiation between MIGS and non-MIGS activity. This means that BZ91 covers procedures of different levels of resource use.</p><p>Reference costs are collected and published annually and the latest published data is for the financial year 2017-18. The reference cost data and links to previous years data can be found at the following link:</p><p><a href="https://improvement.nhs.uk/resources/reference-costs/#rc1718" target="_blank">https://improvement.nhs.uk/resources/reference-costs/#rc1718</a></p>
