The EU has barred the NHS from checking the qualifications of EU doctors and nurse, that means thousands of European doctors and nurses will be able to practice in this country without checks on their qualifications.

 

These new rules in the EU, mean they will be given electronic passports’ which will automatically allow them to practice in hospitals and GP’s surgeries.

 

Europe will issue these passports to nurses, midwives and some other medical staff from January 1st, and doctors in two years’ time, without checking their qualifications or whether they have lied or been suspended.

 

Also they will not be tested on their ability to speak English, because this would impede their ‘freedom of movement’ rights.

 

So if you ever become ill, I would suggest you try the vets after all they will most likely be better qualified than your doctor.

Now I've seen clearly English/British health staff (whatever their race colour or creed) that I would wish sacked on the spot, and staff for whom English was clearly a recently learned language whom I wish I could guarantee were the ones to look after me and mine.

 

Its the culture of tolerance of inadequacy and carelessness which is insidiously growing everywhere, especially 'services' that I would see changed.

I express my honestly held opinions - they are nothing more or less than that.

... Its just doing some due diligence that makes them seem unusual ...

Betrayal of every patient: NHS barred from making vital checks on the qualifications of foreign doctors under new EU rules

 

Thousands of European doctors and nurses will be allowed to work in the UK without vital checks on their qualifications and safety. Under new EU rules, they will be handed electronic 'passports' which automatically enable them to practise in hospitals and GP surgeries. Critics said the system shows a 'scandalous disregard' for patients – and regulators warned they will be unable to protect the public from unsafe health workers.

Its rather ridiculous that all that it needs is a delay for safety checks to be officially bypassed.

 

This should be legally challenged.

 

Well despite my doubts on what would perhaps be best for the British people overall, this has finally convinced me that out is the right way to vote.

Depends on whether you believe this or not. I suspect that the truth is that any employer within any EU country is entitlted to conduct the standard pre employment checks.

 

If you break your leg or have a heart attack in any country, do you start asking for proof of medical qualifications of the Doctors and Nurses helping you, before they start any treatment.

 

There is a dirty campaign being fought by both sides in the EU referendum debate and it is going to get worse. Please do question all of the information in these press articles and work out what the real situation might be.


We could do with some help from you.

Theres a difference between having docters/nurses in hospitals in spain who jave passed western style exams and vetting, and someone totally inappropriate who has repeatedly tried and failed to get a job in an EU country but has got a EU medical qualification passport just because time ran out.

 

Imagine 80,000 migrants all applying in January after getting german visas .....

 

 

Its simply wrong that anyone get a national, let alone international qualification/certification without proper, competent and thorough vetting.

Yes!!!

 

NHS already has an issue with pre employment checks, as they have found staff without qualifications working for them, who they sourced from within the EU and outside the EU.

 

Whether they are a British, French or German etc hospital, it is always up to their Human resources staff to check on the qualifications, previous experience through references and interviewing, before they employ people for a role. No EU passport for qualified workers is going to replace all of the standard recruitment checks that should be carried out.

Up to NHS and private hospital HR to conduct their normal recruitment checks.

 

This is a scare story.

I'm with unclebulgaria on this one - if the individual hospital/surgery doesn't carry out proper checks on someone's qualifications before employing them then this will make no difference as they would already be employing people with inadequate qualifications. It's now even easier to obtain fake degrees etc online.

Check all qualifications and references thoroughly and hopefully the right people will be employed. Imagine the claims if it turns out patients have been wrongly treated by non qualified staff, doesn't bare thinking about.

I would hope that the trust / hopsital employing these people would actually their qualifications before employing them. Afterall, it's what any other company does.

Perhaps, but

 

"It means UK regulators will have to give applicants licences to practise without first checking they have the necessary qualifications and have not lied on forms or been suspended."

means that crucial (in my opinion) checks will have been made - not just unwanted - but against the 'rules'

 

Mind you, the mail online can't even use a spell checker for this crucial and 'critical' article.

 

Here is the detail

After 18 January 2016, regulatory bodies across Europe will be required to operate a warning system to alert each other when a professional is banned from practising in one country, to stop them posing a danger to patients in another EU country.

 

 

And we have seen how this type of things work when they are getting shot of their criminals ?

This is very worrying.

In every European country that I know of, there's an online register for medical professionals and it takes a couple of minutes to check if someone is qualified.

With the highly skilled criminals making forgeries of everything nowadays, I would be inclined to do such easy checks if I was working at nhs human resources.

The Mail comes out with stories like this on a daily basis, when put under scrutiny, often they are misleading or just downright untrue.

 

Personally I support us in being in EU, it gives ALL of us an opportunity to work within the whole of Europe, it is not a one way street, millions of Brits work abroad, my family runs a business in France, and no they were not checked if they could speak French.
