Subject:        Healthcare professionals from EU27 nations

 

 

Request:     

I am writing to you in order to request the following information under the Freedom of Information Act:

  • The number of healthcare professionals from EU27 nations who have stopped working for your NHS Trust in the past year
  • Any risk assessments formulated in the last 3 months relating to a predicted increase in staffing vacancies as a result of Brexit, or particularly a no-deal Brexit.
  • Any planning documents formulated in the last 3 months which outline the expected response to increasing staffing vacancies as a result of Brexit, or particularly a no-deal Brexit.

 

 

Response:    

The number of healthcare professionals from EU27 nations who have stopped working for your NHS Trust in the past year There have been 10 healthcare professionals with an EU27 Nationality recorded in ESR that have left the Trust over the period Jul 18 – Jun 19.
Any risk assessments formulated in the last 3 months relating to a predicted increase in staffing vacancies as a result of Brexit, or particularly a no-deal Brexit. Due to the relatively low numbers of EU27 nationals working for the Trust we have predicted that we will not see a large increase in vacancies.
Any planning documents formulated in the last 3 months which outline the expected response to increasing staffing vacancies as a result of Brexit, or particularly a no-deal Brexit.

 

Papers have been sent to the Trust Board on this matter as part of the wider planning for Brexit. These are available on the Trust website.
