HC Deb 27 November 2002 vol 395 c351W
Mr. Burstow

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what means exist for overseas nurses recruited by agencies to report the failure of their agency to comply with the ethical foreign nurse recruitment policy. [82964]

Mr. Hutton

Overseas nurses are able to contact the international nurses advice line for further advice and also to report their agency if they feel that the agency is not complying to the ethical recruitment policy.

The nurses are also able to contact Work Permits UK and the Department of Trade and Industry depending on the nature of their complaint.

Nurses who are members of unions may also seek advice from these bodies.
