Here you can watch the recording of the webinar with the Home Office where we discussed the new points-based immigration system, what this means for the overseas recruitment, and the latest resources available and information on the EU settlement scheme.
The virtual session was chaired by Adele Bunch, programme lead at NHS Employers, supported by Vickie Hage, senior programme officer. They were joined by Dan Petriello, David Ramsbotham, Steve Cork and Carrie Goulding from the Home Office.
The presentations were followed by a question and answer session, which have been formatted into an FAQs available in the links below.
