The BMA estimates that there are around 2000 refugee doctors in the United Kingdom, and this group represents a highly valuable resource to the NHS. Indeed, refugee doctors have been described as ready-made doctors, creating a win win situation.  They often have considerable years of medical experience and skills, and are ideally suited to work in general practices where there are a large number of refugees or patients seeking asylum. Refugee doctors are highly motivated, hard working, and determined to re-enter their profession.
