UK eligibility

From 6 October 2019, all medical practitioners have been added to the Shortage Occupation List in the UK. This means that all medical practitioners are exempt from the Resident Labour Market Test (RLMT) and can apply for any specialty in any recruitment round, subject to eligibility.

On your application: select the relevant options under 'Right to work in the UK' section

At interview: you will not need to provide evidence of your immigration status at interviews. 

Visa/immigration queries

The staff at the PSRO are NOT able to give advice relating to queries on immigration. We cannot give advice on whether your specific immigration status makes you eligible, how you can change your status, how to apply for different types of visa, etc.

For queries relating to immigration, please visit the UK Home Office website. Further guidance is also available via the Medical Specialty Recruitment Applicant Guide and from the sponsorship teams in each UK nation.
