SAM backs RCP call for clarity from the government over immigration

Following a warning from Royal College of Physicians’ president-elect Dr Andrew Goddard about the impact of Brexit on the NHS workforce and international recruitment, Dr Nick Scriven, president of the Society for Acute Medicine, said:

“We, like the RCP, find this extremely worrying in current financial and staffing climate.

“We know many of our medical and nursing posts on the ‘frontline’ of urgent care are unfilled or occupied by highly skilled hard working people from outside the UK.

“We fully support Dr Goddard’s closing remarks regarding a challenge for the government to provide certainty.”
