Bleasdale explained: “Under current rules we are seeing situations where, say, French or Spanish doctors can start work in the UK without having to demonstrate fluency in English at all.

“Hospitals and patients want medical professionals who are highly trained, skilled and speak fluent English. That’s what we want too. That is why HCL plc is proud to adhere to the UK Department of Health’s guidelines on ethical international recruitment, and why we ensure that compliance and skills checks on all our candidates meet all legal requirements and exceed the highest standards of best practice.”

Bleasdale concluded: “With a rapidly growing and ageing population we must do everything we can to ensure that the NHS can cope with the demands for its services. And in the current economic climate, the NHS has to be able to recruit high quality staff in an efficient and cost-effective manner.
