Mutual recognition of professional qualifications in healthcare

The revised Mutual Recognition of Professional Qualifications (MRPQ) Directive has brought in a number of changes that aim to further facilitate the free movement of professionals within the EU.

This consultation sets out the changes for nurses, midwives, pharmacists, doctors and dentists. It seeks views on the draft legislation that is needed to implement the changes and any potential impacts. It also sets out a number of the cross-sector changes that were covered in the Department for Business Innovation and Skills consultation of March 2015 and could impact on the health and care professional regulators.
