Hays Say Immigration Cap Will Widen Health Sector Skill Shortages

Mr Faraguna said that “Despite the high unemployment levels in the UK, we are still struggling to recruit certain skills and are faced with an ageing workforce so would not recommend a blanket approach to immigration. Skill shortages are prevalent in a number of areas of social care and affect many healthcare disciplines. For example, the current and forward requirements from our clients indicate there is a global shortage of specialist doctors that Europe alone cannot address and hospitals benefit from the use of specialist consultants from overseas. Recruiting from overseas allows us to recruit the right skills in sufficient numbers to meet the needs of employers nationwide – we aren’t at a stage where they are self-sufficient.”
