“The NHS is dependent on IMG doctors (international medical graduate) to provide a high quality, reliable and safe service to patients. They enrich the NHS with their skills, enthusiasm and diverse perspectives and have become essential members of the UK’s medical workforce.“ British Medical Association

“Entering UK medical practice can be hard for any doctor, regardless of where you’re from or how experienced you are. There can be significant differences in practising medicine in your home country and the UK, and it can be difficult to adapt to working in a new culture.” General Medical Council

As an international Doctor the transition to the NHS is not always an easy one. Different cultures, practices and structures can all represent barriers to effective working and patient care.  This conference focuses on the important issue of supporting International Doctors in the NHS, from recruitment and induction to ongoing support. Chaired by Dr Umesh Prabhu, Medical Advisor for International Recruitment this conference aims to improve support to IMG Doctors working in the NHS.
