Liz writes for HuffPost: Brexit must not leave the NHS short staffed

I contributed to a report by Global Future that highlighted how much our NHS depends on overseas staff, with 45% of doctors in some specialities coming from outside the UK. The NHS is suffering severe staff shortages but health professionals from outside the EU are having their visas turned down and many European staff are leaving. The Government must take urgent measures to stop this drain of NHS staff and ensure skilled NHS workers are welcomed.
