DAUK in Asian Voice: Doctors fighting racism “want” to resign

NHS professionals have warned that the UK is racing towards the second wave of coronavirus with ministers concerned that the black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) community may once again be forced to “shoulder the burden of this pandemic” if a “plan of action” is not in place.

This warning from the Doctor’s Association of UK (DAUK) should be a red flag for the Health Secretary especially after 600 healthcare workers, a majority of them from BAME backgrounds, lost their lives during the first wave of coronavirus.


DAUK victory on free visa extensions for doctors stranded due to cancellation of PLAB

Some good news! We previously wrote a letter about doctors being stranded due to cancellation of the PLAB exam. These doctors have now been granted a free automatic visa extension off the back of our letter in collaboration with a number of organisations. We hope that this provides some much needed financial and emotional relief for all those affected.
