LONDON May 1: NHS recruitment from India has been suspended amid concern over doctors and nurses leaving when they are most needed during India’s devastating Covid-19 crisis, Telegraph newspaper reported.

The Government is expected to introduce the pause on arrivals of clinicians from India who have been recruited to join NHS trusts but have not yet travelled.

Health Service Journal (HSJ) had reported yesterday that the UK government is set to suspend NHS recruitment from India in light of the devastating Covid wave currently hitting the country.

There has been concern about reports of clinicians moving to the UK to work in the NHS while Indian health services are in such dire need.

According to HSJ those who have already been recruited to join NHS trusts, but not yet travelled, will now be delayed, sources said.
