HC Deb 26 February 2003 vol 400 c633W
Mr. Baron

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what the 25 countries were from which the highest number of overseas nurses were recruited in each of the last five years; and how many nurses were recruited from each country in each year. [98393]

Mr. Hutton

[holding answer 24 February 2003]: This information is not held centrally. The Nursing and Midwifery Council registers all nurses who work in the United Kingdom and holds statistics for the number of overseas nurses who are accepted onto their register.
