Danny Mortimer, Chief Executive, NHS Employers said:
“We are delighted with this positive announcement that nurses are to be included on the shortage occupation list as an interim measure.
“We know employers across England will welcome this support from the government for their efforts to deliver safe services this winter, and to also reduce their reliance on more expensive agency staff.
“We will continue our focused work with the NHS and our colleagues in the wider health and social care provision to ensure that the Migration Advisory Committee receive robust evidence to enable nursing to remain on the list of shortage occupations.”
