The introduction of the Health and Care visa in August 2020 has made it quicker and cheaper for regulated health and care professionals, including Senior Care Workers, and their dependants to secure their visa.

In July, the Government commissioned the MAC to review the impact of ending free movement on the social care sector. The MAC have issued a call for evidence with stakeholders and we look forward to receiving their report in April 2022.
