Making the case for paediatrics on the Shortage Occupation List

The College has responded to the Migration Advisory Committee's call for evidence, recommending that all paediatric grades in the UK be added to the Shortage Occupation List, Appendix K on the Immigration Rules.

Our response was supported by evidence that demonstrated workforce shortages, growing demand and recruitment difficulties in paediatrics. Thank you to everyone who contributed to the response.

You can download our full submission in our responses to workforce consultations.

You can also find detail about the paediatric workforce and demand in our Workforce briefing - winter 2018 short report.
