EU citizens working in health and social care

Many EU citizens currently work in health and social care settings in Scotland and their contribution is greatly valued.

The Scottish Parliament has approved legislation - enacted by the UK Government - to make sure the process for recognising professional qualifications is not disrupted from 1 January 2021

You find more information on recognising professional qualifications on GOV.UK.

EU citizens should be able to continue working as they do now, but will need to apply for settled status by 30 June 2021 to continue living and working in the UK.

You can also find more information on the EU Settlement Scheme. This includes information on how to apply for the scheme and the Scottish Government's advisory service for EU citizens.
