Postgraduate doctors and dentists

On 19 June 2006 a new application category for Postgraduate Doctors and Dentists will be available within Tier 2 of the Business and Commercial work permit arrangements. From this date all applications for doctors and dentists filling training posts within the NHS at Foundation Programme, Senior House Officer, GP Registrar or Specialist Registrar level must be made using this new form. Applications should be submitted by the appropriate Postgraduate Deans for a work permit to cover the entirety of the programme at that level.

A new application form (PD1) and guidance to be used for the new category will be available shortly.
