Family migration rules lack 'basic common sense'.


New rules on family migration are ‘inhumane and lacking in basic common sense’, an MP told a parliamentary debate.

The work of the BMA in highlighting the impact of the rule changes on the NHS and individual doctors was also highlighted in the Westminster Hall debate this week.

The association gave evidence to the APPG (all-party parliamentary group) on migration, raising concerns about the workforce implications of the rule changes that affect senior doctors in the NHS.

Earlier this month, the APPG published its inquiry report, calling for a review of the rules.

Under the July 2012 rule changes, relatives of British citizens have to demonstrate they need long-term personal care that could only be provided by their relatives in the UK, and without recourse to public funds.
