We know that there has been a lot of uncertainty for the EU nationals on our register and their families since the United Kingdom (UK) made its decision to leave the European Union (EU).

We want you to know that your registration will not be affected when the UK leaves the EU on 29 March 2019.

Your commitment and dedication to delivering high standards of care with respect and compassion is recognised by us, your colleagues and the community.

What we know so far

Applying for immigration status

If you’re an EU citizen, you and your family will be able to apply to get either settled or pre-settled status under the EU Settlement Scheme.

This will mean you can continue living, working and accessing public services (such as healthcare and benefits) in the UK after 31 December 2020.

You will not need to apply if you’re an Irish citizen or if you have indefinite leave to remain in the UK.

As a health and care professional, you can apply to the EU Settlement Scheme pilot

You can register for alerts to find out when the pilot scheme goes live. 

If you're not able to apply to the pilot, you haven't missed out. The scheme will fully open to everyone from 30 March 2019.
