The allied healthcare occupation incorporates several professions including physiotherapists, occupational therapists, radiographers, practitioner psychologists, art therapist, chiropodist, clinical scientists, biomedical scientists, dieticians, paramedics, and prosthetics, operating department practitioners, hearing aid dispensers and speech and language therapists.

The Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) is the body that regulates most allied health professionals (AHPs) in the UK. The exception are osteopaths who need to register with the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC). The HCPC and GOsC set standards of professional training, performance and conduct and hold a register of health professionals who meet the registration standards. Registration requires qualification verification, history of professional experience, background check, scrutiny fee (£539.65 one off non-refundable application fee).

Points-based immigration system:

The Home Office (of which UKVI is a part) is responsible for governing the way individuals from outside the EEA can work, train or study in the UK.

A new points-based immigration system was introduced in January 2021 with parts of it in place towards the end of 2020. The system provides a route for both EEA and non-EEA nationals to work, train or study in the UK if they meet the eligibility criteria.

This points-based system has largely replaced the previous tiered system. It applies to everyone from outside of the UK who wishes to live and work here, apart from people from the Republic of Ireland and individuals who were already in the UK by 31 December 2020.

A Health and Care Worker visa (tier 2) allows health and care professionals to come to or stay in the UK to do an eligible job with the NHS, an NHS supplier or in adult social care.

Applications are assessed using a points system that is intended to only allow entry to those whose skills will benefit the UK. The number of points required, and the way the points are awarded, depend on the category under which individuals apply, but reflect:

  • A job offer
  • Skill level
  • Language competence
  • Qualifications
  • Other set criteria

Biometric residence permits:

Issued to foreign nationals, a biometric residence permit (BRP) is a card which holds your biographic details (name, date, and place of birth), your ‘biometric information'(fingerprints and digital facial image) and shows your immigration status and your entitlements while you are in the UK.

Individuals are issued a BRP automatically when they apply for a visa or immigration. A sticker or vignette, valid for 30 days, is issued in passports, allowing enough time to travel to the UK. On arrival, you will have ten days to collect your BRP from a post office branch, as specified in your decision letter.
As part of recruitment practice in the NHS, verification of identity checks is used to determine that an identity is genuine and that it belongs to the individual presenting it.

BRP cards can be used to verify identity and complete this check.
