Minister proposes tighter language checks for European NHS staff

Comment

Having worked in operating theatres for 20 years its not just staff from within the EU that need their language skills checking. The Central London hospital where I work recently had a recruitment drive and on the first week of the new staff working in theatres they clearly could not speak English,or maybe they could speak English but chose to speak in their own language .
