Doctors and nurses from African countries including Ghana are eligible to live and work in the UK in spite of the United Kingdom’s Code of Practice which has suspended the recruitment of health professionals from 152 countries since 2008.

Even with the updated version, which basically iterates the 2008 code and reduced the list to 47, Ghanaian health workers can directly apply to hospitals and care homes without any restrictions as the UK has not banned people (including those in the health sector) from the 47 countries from entering the country.

The implication of this updated code of practice is that recruitment agencies cannot come to Ghana to recruit. Consequently, health workers have to apply online directly to the employers – NHS, Care Homes, etc or through agencies (most of them do not have contracts to recruit as a result of the upsurge in direct applications from job seekers like you), which is what has been the procedure since 2008.

As a migration agency that champions legal and safe migration, Dreams Consult can confidently say that the direct application process is genuine and accepted by the UK as we have through this process facilitated several job applications and travels for hundreds of health workers.

We wish to reaffirm our commitment to faciliating geniune migration that guarantees our  clients  a stress-free, seamless and legal travel experience.

For more information on the direct application and how you can legally migrate to live and work as a doctor or nurse in the UK, feel free to read this.

You can visit our office, call or whatsapp us if you have IELTS and CBT but not getting a job offer. We will advise you on what you should do or help you do the applications if you so wish.
