The British Government through the MAC (Migration Advisory Committee) finally recognised the serious situation that exists in the UK in relation to the shortage of nurses and re-instated general nurses on to the SOL (Skills Occupation List) in September 2015 the first time this has happened since 2008.
In addition in June 2018 the British Government removed the limit or Cap of 20,700 that applies for overseas workers for Doctors and Nurses only, which until now had restricted the number of Doctors and Nurses allowed into the UK from outside the European Union, the EU.
For a number of years there have been nurses on the SOL, but in specialist areas such as neo-natal infant and child care, but this departure from specific nursing skills to that of considering all nursing capabilities provides the opportunity for non-EU nurses to apply to come to the UK for a minimum of 3 years under the SOL conditions.
