By February 2016, nurses from outside European Economic Area (EEA) will have a better chance to work for the UK National Health Service (NHS). Indeed, the UK government is introducing new controls on costly agencies spendings leading to changes to restrictions on nurses recruitment from overseas. Therefore, all work applications made by nurses from outside EEA will be prioritised. This initiative aims to improve the quality of service towards NHS patients as well to invest in the future and to maintain safe staffing levels.
