After you have secured a position through us, we will send you a welcome pack detailing essential information you will need for moving to the UK. This will include details on registering with the relevant authorities, setting up a bank account, registering with a General Practitioner and other general information to get you quickly settled into the UK.

We will also help you to secure accommodation near your workplace for the first month after your move. Where possible, this will be in hospital accommodation.

The UK is very multicultural, with thriving, immigrant communities. Wherever you live you will more than likely find a large number of your compatriots, and most probably a few cafes and shops selling products from your home country. We find that this greatly eases the transition to living in the UK meaning you will soon feel at home, whilst also quickly getting to know your colleagues both from the UK and other countries.


Brexit

It is widely believed that the status of EU nurses in the UK will remain unchanged after Brexit. There is a significant shortage of medical staff in the NHS and it is heavily dependent on workers from abroad. The government is likely to maintain the present system both for those EU nationals already working in the NHS but also for EU nationals who wish to work in the NHS in the future.
