EU settlement scheme aims to ease post-Brexit staffing problems

The Home Office has announced plans to test the EU settlement scheme with all health and social care workers from 26 November 2018.

This means EU citizens working in the health or care sector will have early access to the scheme before it is rolled out more widely in 2019. NHS Employers will be working with the Department of Health and Social Care and the Home Office to get relevant information to those who need to register for the scheme. While the scheme does not open until 26 November, the government is urging NHS bodies to start preparing now by identifying those staff who need to register.
