Health Services and Public Health Managers and Directors

Duncan Lewis Business Immigration Solicitors – Health Services and Public Health Managers and Directors – UK Visa Applications

 

Pressure on the NHS to improve performance and patient safety has created an unprecedented demand for highly skilled and experienced healthcare staff – including health services and public health managers and directors to implement government reforms and restructure services to improve the patient experience.

 

Severe skills shortages in the healthcare sector have meant international recruitment of healthcare staff – however, global competition for health services and public health managers and directors, and restrictions on Tier 2 visas in the UK, can make recruitment of highly-qualified candidates a challenge.

 

Duncan Lewis business immigration solicitors can advise healthcare providers on the international recruitment of health services and public health managers and directors from non-EEA countries – who are eligible to work in the UK under the regulations covering occupations skilled to NQF Level 6.

 

Duncan Lewis business immigration lawyers frequently advise companies on Tier 2 applications – as well as advising on recruiting recent overseas graduates who have qualified in the UK.

 

Any Tier 2 applicants can be sponsored for jobs in certain occupations – and the government has drawn up a list of eligible occupations for health services and public health managers and directors wishing to apply for a Tier 2 visa to take up a position in the UK.

 

UK Visas & Immigration regulations set out in the Codes of Practice for Skilled Workers such as health services and public health managers and directors.

Under the regulations, the sort of roles within a company that would be eligible for a Tier 2 visa application include:
 

  • Director of nursing
  • Health Service manager
  • Information manager (health authority: hospital service).

 

UK Visas & Immigration rules also set out the types of duties health services and public health managers and directors might undertake to qualify for a Tier 2 visa, including:

 

  • implements policies of the board, ensures statutory procedures are followed, with particular emphasis on patient safety and the management of risk
  • liaises with healthcare professionals to determine short and long-term needs and how to meet these objectives within budgetary constraints
  • oversees the day-to-day management of the unit or service and provides leadership to staff
  • uses statistical information to monitor performance and assist with planning
  • negotiates and manages contracts with providers and purchasers of health care services
  • manages staff, including recruitment, appraisal and development
  • monitors and reports upon the effectiveness of services with a view to improving the efficiency of health care provision
  • co-ordinates the promotion of public health and wellbeing in the actions and policies of public agencies and their social partners
  • monitors and reports upon the state of public health and wellbeing.

 

The current minimum salary range for health services and public health managers and directors applying for a Tier 2 UK visa would be £32,400         for an experienced member of staff – and £21,600 for a new entrant.
