Offer Indefinite Leave to Remain to all NHS and social care workers
The Government should introduce legislation to offer non-UK NHS workers and social care workers automatic Indefinite Leave to Remain as they stay and risk their own lives and their families lives to look after the British people during the COVID -19 pandemic crisis.
The UK Govt has said it will extend the visas of those frontline workers, such as doctors, nurses and paramedics "so they can focus on fighting coronavirus", but this will only apply to around 5,000 NHS workers.
Doctors, nurses, paramedics and social care workers from all over the world are playing a leading role in the NHS and social care. The country owes them a great deal of gratitude for all that they do. So give right to stay.
If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
