Danny Mortimer, Chief Executive, NHS Employers said:

“We are delighted with the recommendation to retain nurses on the shortage occupation list. Demand for skilled overseas staff will continue whilst domestic supply increases and this decision will be welcomed by all providers of health and care.  We await with interest the full response from the Home Office to MAC’s recommendations both on nurses and tier 2 migration.  

"In making its recommendation MAC comments on a wide range of issues.  In particular they appear to be suggesting that the NHS is as a matter of policy underpaying international recruits relative to their domestic counterparts.  This misunderstands the way in which previous service in the NHS is recognised by employers."
