Petition: Put General Practitioners on the Home Office’s ‘Shortage Occupation List’

GP Practices in rural areas struggle to recruit doctors, forcing many surgeries to close. There are many GPs from outside the EU who would like to work in the UK. However, Practices can't offer them a job without going through the visa bureaucracy, and the NHS is losing many good doctors as a result.

Please take a look at this petition , and share it with your colleagues, if you agree that General Practice should be recognised by the Home Office as a shortage occupation.
