Map of europe

The EU Settlement Scheme pilot for EU workers in the NHS launches on Thursday 29 November 2018.


This pilot is open to EU workers in the education, health, and social care sectors until 22 December 2018. There is no obligation for EU citizens within organisations to participate at this stage, however, if they do, they will obtain their pre-settled status or settled status ahead of when the scheme opens fully in March 2019.


The links below provide all of the information that staff will need to complete an application. Please help your EU workers to complete an application by making this information available.


  • Briefing pack – this document contains an overview of the pilot, who is eligible and how the application will work. It also contains a series of links to further information on GOV.UK.
  • Email template – this is a draft email for you to send from today to staff who are eligible to apply. Please feel free to tailor this as required or to replicate the content for your other internal channels.
  • Poster – for displaying on staff notice boards. 

You can find out more about the EU Settlement Scheme via our dedicated webpage.
