UK Health and Social Care Visas
A Health and Social Care Worker visa allows medical professionals to come to or stay in the UK to do an eligible job with the NHS, an NHS supplier or in adult social care.
To qualify for a Health and Social Care Worker visa, you must:
be a qualified doctor, nurse, health professional or adult social care professional
work in an eligible health or social care job
work for a UK employer that’s been approved by the Home Office
have a ‘certificate of sponsorship’ from your employer with information about the role you’ve been offered in the UK
be paid a minimum salary - how much depends on the type of work you do
Have a suitable knowledge of English
Unlike most other work visas, Health and Social Care visa applicants, and accompanying dependants, do not have to pay the Immigration Health Charge. This can be a large saving, particularly for long term visas and/or where you have a lot of family members accompanying you.
If you are an employer wanting to sponsor a Health and Social Care visa, or are a healthcare worker needing this visa, please get in touch.
