Dear Colleagues,

We would like to assure you that we are there for you and your trainees during this challenging time. We are working remotely and all one to one meetings are taking place via phone or Skype. Anyone can contact us via email, or if urgent, call Leona Walsh on 07900191933 or DM @LeonaAWalsh. We are here to talk through any challenges you and trainees may be facing.

You do not have to be in difficulty to contact us for support. We are planning a weekly live open forum for anyone to drop in and details for this will follow. For now you can view resources relating to COVID-19. Please feel free to forward this information to anyone who may find it useful.

We are thinking of you, and are there for you when you need us #compassionstartswithme.

Stay well!

Leona, on behalf of the Professional Support Team

International medical graduates

In the UK the term International Medical Graduates (IMGs) refers to overseas doctors and refugee doctors whose primary medical qualification is from a medical school outside the UK and EU. This term also includes UK citizens who have trained in medical schools outside the UK and EU, and overseas doctors who have trained in a UK medical school but do not have rights of residence.

Refugee doctors

HEIW has for many years worked on behalf of refugee doctors, who have fled persecution in their own countries to seek asylum in the UK, and who now wish to rebuild their careers here.
