Ruling won by overseas doctors9th November 2007
The Court of Appeal has ruled that doctors from overseas applying to work in the NHS "must be allowed to compete for training posts on an equal footing."
The Department of Health had previously said that overseas applicants could only be considered if no suitable person from the UK or EU was available. The guidance was brought to court by the British Association of Physicians of Indian Origin (BAPIO).
Mr Ram Moorthy from the BMA Junior Doctors Committee said: "The chaotic implementation of the new immigration rules left overseas doctors exposed to potential discrimination."
