Skilled Worker Visas (Tier 2)

Posted in GP

This page provides information on the Skilled Worker Visa scheme and is intended for both IMG doctors who are on these visas, and for practices that are interested in being able to employ clinicians on visas.

For IMGs on Skilled Worker Visas

If you are an IMG doctor on the STW VTS and are currently working under a Skilled Worker Visa, you will need to ensure that your post-CCT plans are in place.

If you wish to work in STW as a qualified GP you will need to work for a sponsoring employer. The current position in STW is as follows:

  • Around 14 of our 51 practices are sponsoring practices – you can find out which ones by contacting This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
  • Most GP vacancies are advertised on the STW Training Hub website, and we encourage practices to state whether they are a sponsoring employer on job adverts
  • We have recruited an Ethnically Diverse GP Champion (Dr Muhammad Zeb) This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
  • Part of Dr Zeb’s role is to assist IMG doctors with the process of transition from the VTS to the post-CCT world
  • Fees and costs payable by Skilled Worker Visa holders can be reimbursed by NHSE/I via the GP’s employing practice
