Closed petition Grant work permits to asylum seekers who are trained doctors

There are many asylum seeker doctors in the UK who could be able to work as support workers during the pandemic but cannot do so because of their status. Many of them already meet language requirements. Please give them work permit so they are able to contribute to the NHS as support workers.

More details

Asylum seeker doctors' precious knowledge and experience are wasted as they are not allowed to work. During this pandemic they could be helpful to the NHS in many ways, at least as support workers, as many refugee doctors have passed the IELTS or OET exams.
