New rules will ban non-EU doctors

Doctors from outside the EU will be prevented from applying for postgraduate training posts in the UK when new immigration rules come into force.

The Home Office has outlined new regulations to prevent overseas doctors applying for foundation and speciality training posts after complaints that homegrown doctors are unable to find jobs once they graduate.

The rules would see a drop of between 3,000 and 5,000 overseas applications when it first affects recruitment in 2009, officials estimate.
