UK Has Stopped The Recruitment Of Doctors And Nurses From Nigeria And 46 Others by Almaplusblog: 3:44pm On Mar 11, 2021
The United Kingdom (UK) has announced the suspension of international recruitment of health and care workers from Nigeria and 46 other countries under a new regime of its updated Code of Practice (CoP).

According to Africa Check, about 5, 250 Nigerian-trained doctors are on the UK books as at April 2018, a rise of 10 per cent on the previous year.

The UK said CoP provide safeguards against active recruitment from 47 countries on the WHO Health Workforce Support and Safeguards list. The list of the 47 countries is included in its updated CoP which sets out how UK health and social care employers can ethically recruit from overseas.

The announcement which is contained in the CoP and released by the UK Department of Health and Social Care would help to meet UK’s target of delivering 50,000 more nurses by 2024

The UK in announcing the suspension said it aligns with World Health Organisation’s (WHO) advice on ethical recruitment to promote effective, fair and sustainable international recruitment practices, adding that the UK will strengthen its ethical approach to the international recruitment of health and care workers.

To align with the WHO, UK said the new code refers to the WHO Health Workforce Support and safeguard list 2020 of 47 countries where active recruitment can’t be undertaken.

This, it said, replaces the previous UK-held list of 152 countries, and removes confusion which can arise from the UK holding a separate list of countries.

It warned that UK recruiters are not permitted to actively recruit from these countries unless there is a government to government agreement in place for managed recruitment. The CoP, according to UK sets out how the UK can work collaboratively with governments from around the world, forming partnerships to benefit health and social care workers, their country of origin and the UK.

“The UK has updated its code of practice for the international recruitment of health and social care staff to align with the World Health Organization (WHO), widening the global market from which the UK can ethically recruit. This will provide increasing numbers of international staff with the opportunity to come and work in the UK’s health and social care sectors to deliver world-class care.”

The affected countries include Afghanistan, Angola, Bangladesh, Nigeria, Benin, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Chad, Congo, Congo Democratic Republic of, Côte d’Ivoire, Djibouti,Equatorial Guinea, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Gabon, Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Haiti, Kiribati, Lesotho, Liberia, among others.

This is not a new news, it has been in law.

Actively recruitment: when a UK job agency advertises job opportunities in the Uk health sectors in Nigeria, help and support health professionals to find jobs and also process their applications in the Uk.

What NHS is saying

What the NHS is saying is that recruitment agencies for doctors and nurses in the UK can not advertise or run recruitment fairs in Nigeria. They can not support doctors or nurses with their job applications because it is like recruiting them for a job.

Nigerian health professionals need to directly find for jobs for themselves in the Uk, without the help of Recruitment agencies.

In other word, The NHS does not actively recruit from Nigeria but a doctor can apply directly to any employer who need his or her services

As long as a Nigerian doctors passes all required exams, he or she can apply for a job in the Uk. It doesn't break the rules.

This is a case study that doesn't break the rules

A nurse or doctor from Nigeria applies to work in the NHS unassisted. He is interviewed by the trust and deemed successful for the post, subsequently travelling to the UK on receipt of his visa. This activity did not include any active recruitment therefore does not contravene the code of practice


All Nigerian doctors fall in this category of the case study.


This is a case study that breaks the rules.


An agency runs a recruitment fair in Nigeria highlighting opportunities in the UK. Nigeria is on the list and should not be actively targeted for recruitment. The agency does not actually hire anyone. This would still be deemed active recruitment and contravenes the guiding principles within the code of practice.

It's sad that the western world gives medical aids to Africa yet "takes" their medical personnel. Who's to blame? The Europeans and Americans that employ skilled people (who willingly applied) to serve their countries or the doctors that leave their home countries after getting trained by their local institutions in search of greener pastures?

Something must be wrong with black man.
Why cant black people develop their continent and stop running from pillar to post
How many white men are in Africa for hustling?? In Europe and USA Nigerians are there constituting nuisance.
In the law of creation, black man is created to serve the white people.
We do not produce anything. We are only good at speaking grammar
Today, the whites are in mars while the black people are busy talking politics on how to steal

Better, all doctors to his/her own country.

When I become the president, I'll ban all doctors, nurses, engineers, programmers and scientists from relocating from the country. They are free to go on vacations.

All third world countries. But if they bring money to the UK, the government will help them stash it! The British racism is real!
