“We are pleased to see that the committee recognises the incredible contribution our colleagues from mainland Europe and elsewhere outside the UK make throughout the health and social care sector,” said Mrs Ahmed.

“This talented and diverse group of people are essential to our ability to provide the best possible care to the people we proudly serve. The Cavendish Coalition welcomed the opportunity to provide evidence to the committee and to share our insight on the potential workforce supply issues for health and social care in the UK, arising from the UK’s departure from the EU.

“Ensuring we have practical mechanisms to retain our existing workforce and recruit staff in the future, from any part of the world, is critical to the stability of our services and continuity of care. The Cavendish Coalition looks forward to working with the successor committee as this work is taken forward.”
