Britain Reconsidering New Visa Rules for Indian Doctors

Britain's health authorities are reconsidering recent changes in visa rules that in effect make thousands of doctors of Indian origin ineligible// to work in the National Health Service.

A DoH spokesperson said: "As we stated in a letter to BAPIO, the guidance to the amendments to the Immigration Rules is currently being reconsidered."

Mehta said: "We are very upset that the DoH is taking its own time while our doctors are losing valuable training opportunities. Since April this year, employers have already sta
