DAUK was alerted by a significant number of doctors to delays in issuing Certificate’s of Sponsorship (COS) and Biometric Residence Permits (BRP). Without these necessary bits of “red tape” Doctors are unable to take up jobs they have been offered, secure places to rent/get a mortgage. They are having to give up offers of work, leaving hospitals and GP surgeries short staffed due to these unnecessary bureaucratic delays. 

Our letter to Health Education England expressing our concerns and their reply are below:

DAUK also wrote to the Home Office regarding the same issue. We await a response
