    Hello Respected sir /Madam
    Greetings from USA. I’m a 32-year-old male who has done postgarduation in OTOLARYNGOLOGY from India, worked in Department of Otolaryngology; at one of the country’s leading academic institutions called Bangalore Medical College and associated hospitals, India.
    Being a developing country, with a large population of underprivileged and economically weaker section, we are faced with a huge prevalence of ear diseases which flock to free Government Owned Institutions like ours.
    My major field of interest is primarily Otology and laryngology. In spite of tremendous patient in put, the clinical material available for surgical training & the research facilities here are limited and I would consider it an honor and my privilege to visit your institution for 2 year fellowship so to be able to implement my learning for a better future here.Hoping for your early respone.
    Warm Regards,
    Dr Ramesh Hanumanthaiah

    Dear friend,

    Are you an Overseas Doctor working in UK or currently in UK, but unemployed?

    If yes, this could be the most important mail you have ever received.
    Please read this mail in full - Very important information enclosed.

    What is happening?

    From April 2006, two things, which affect you, are going to happen:

    Permit free training for overseas doctors is ending.
    Equal Opportunities policy will no longer apply for doctor's job selection. This means that Trusts will employ UK/EU doctors in preference to overseas graduates irrespective of qualifications and irrespective of visa status.

    Trusts have already started recruitment with the new policy with the explicit statement: " UK/EU candidates will be given preference over non-EU overseas graduates" (eg:

    Why is this a problem?

    This was announced without any Consultation or grace period. This has significant implications for overseas doctors at all levels of training. They will find that after years of serving the NHS, they are being thrown aside in job selection. There is no guarantee that they will continue to be employed in further posts. Many will have to relocate at short notice, causing disruption to career, finances and family life, not to mention training. This is shocking news to all of us who came here believing in the promise of Equal Opportunities.

    What are the implications?

    All Doctors: You will have to change your Visa status. There will be NO Equal Opportunities in job selection and your skills and qualifications will not matter.

    Those on HSMP, Permanent Residency etc will also be considered as "overseas doctors" for the purpose of job selection and will be considered only after UK/EU candidates.

    SHO: You may never complete your "training". For those who want only MRCP and not UK jobs, remember that most Royal Colleges want 2 years "approved training posts". If you don't get a job, your Work Permit will end and you will become an illegal resident from the next day. If you are currently unemployed, you will almost surely never get a job / "training".

    Registrars: You will require a separate work permit for each job in your rotation! And for those planning to specialise further, the door is shut firmly on your face. And you will never become a Consultant! (What you do after your SPR training is anybody's guess… Think of all the time you spent on learning "Consultant skills!) Isn't it gratifying to note that an EU candidate with no " UK experience " will be automatically considered over you for Consultant job selection, without regard for skills or experience?

    What can we do?

    The Time to Act is NOW.

    Don't postpone it to tomorrow or expect others to fight your battles. Overseas doctors associations including British Association of Physicians of Indian Origin (BAPIO)are already gearing up to protest this unjust rule.

    · FORWARD this email to all overseas doctors in your address book NOW. Sadly many are still not aware of the dark future ahead.

    · SIGN the online petition at this web site which is being submitted to the Secretary of State for Health
