Summary

Many refugees and asylum seekers now in the United Kingdom have trained and worked as doctors nurses midwives and other professionals allied to medicine in the countries from which they have departed. However refugees face considerable problems and difficulties in their quest to continue or resume their careers as health professionals in the UK. This book has brought together authors from varying organisations and professional backgrounds who are dedicated to supporting the integration of refugee doctors into the National Health Service workforce. It is timely and informative for all those working with refugee doctors in the NHS and a useful handbook for refugee doctors themselves. It will help all refugee doctors use their qualifications and expertise in the UK and maximise their contribution to the NHS workforce. All members of workforce development confederations strategic health authorities NHS trusts and primary care organisations and refugee doctors wishing to work in the NHS in the UK will find this book invaluable reading. 'This book gives a very full account of many aspects of a complex situation. It details the history of refugee doctors and the range of problems that they face and also shows the contribution that they can make and the personal courage and resilience it takes to survive the transition. It outlines practical steps from improving English to preparation for examinations they must pass and preparing for job interviews in a competitive market.' Dame Lesley Southgate President Royal Free and University College Medical School London and Past President Royal College of General Practitioners
