Automatic NHS visa extensions a welcome step from Government

Danny Mortimer

Responding to the Home Office's visa extensions for health workers, Danny Mortimer, deputy chief executive of the NHS Confederation and chief executive of NHS Employers, said:

“These sensible, pragmatic and timely decisions by the Home Office will be warmly welcomed by NHS staff and workforce leaders across the country. The visa issue in particular is something we have been urging the Government to consider and we are grateful it has listened.

“At this time of national crisis, we must do everything we can to support the NHS, including removing hurdles to facilitate the much needed supply of frontline staff on the ground as quickly as possible.”
