The Mail Online Reveals Huge Drop in European Nurses: Garth Coates Solicitors Comments

London, England -- (ReleaseWire) -- 02/22/2017 -- The Mail Online has recently revealed that the number of nurses registering to work in the UK has dropped by a staggering 292% following the controversial Brexit vote. In July 2016, directly after the referendum 1,304 European nurses registered to work in the UK, however by December that number had decreased to just 101 – which is truly deviating news considering that there's not enough nursing staff available in the UK, with over 24,000 nursing vacancies currently being advertised. Experts are warning that it this trend continues, the NHS could begin to suffer tragically.

The chief executive of the Royal College or Nursing has in line with this spoken out saying that the NHS simply would not be able to cope without the contribution of EU nurses, going on to say that she believes a guarantee is needed showing that going forward EU nationals working in the NHS will remain. Without this guarantee it is much harder for the NHS to recruit staff from the EU and as a result patient care is suffering which is not acceptable.

A spokesperson from one the UK's leading immigration solicitors, Garth Coates, were incredibly keen to comment on this dreadful news saying, "This is devastating news to all, and not only to those at the NHS but also everyone whom is entitled to NHS care. We thoroughly hope that a guarantee will be made soon, allowing for European nurses to start registering to work in the UK again, but until them we are here to offer all leading immigration advice and guidance. If anyone has any questions regarding moving to the UK for work, we are only a phone call away."
