Dear Home Office,
I would like to know for each of the last 3 years :
1a) the total number visa applications which were made where the applicant had a qualification that could have enabled them to work within the health service as a health care professional. For example a health care assistant, nurse, allied health professional or doctor.
1b) a break down of country of origin for these applications.
1c) a breakdown of the total by the relevant qualification/health occupational area. For example a health care assistant, nurse, allied health professional or doctor.
Rejected then accepted
2a) From the total applications above, the number who were not not accepted at the first stage but were subsequently accepted.
2b) A breakdown of the number by the reasons for initial rejection
2c) A breakdown of the number by subsequent resolution.
3a) From the total applications above, the number who were completely rejected.
3b) A break down of the rejections by the reasons for the rejection
3c) A break down of rejections by country of origin.
