The Bishop of St Albans received the following written answer on 18th July 2022:
The Lord Bishop of St Albans asked Her Majesty’s Government, further to the Written Answer by Lord Kamall on 27 June (HL1046), what plans they have to record data on the number of health care professionals who were hired from countries graded as red by the World Health Organisation.
Lord Kamal (Con): We have no plans to do so.
We collate data from published sources to monitor the patterns of staff joining the National Health Service who have trained outside the United Kingdom. This includes data from the the Nursing and Midwifery Council’s register and the Electronic Staff Record’s information on the nationality of staff.
