What are the prospects of a non-UK medical school graduate and non-EU citizen to obtain a training job in the UK?

Unlike previous generations of doctors, a medical degree nowadays does not offer international flexibility with where you want to work and is very much restricted by your citizenship status. The United Kingdom has a high standard of postgraduate training which may appeal to many foreign graduates. Looking for statistics per specialty and if anybody has any personal experience to share.

Minimising bleeding during percutaneous coronary intervention

In 2013 more than 92 500 percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) procedures were performed in the United Kingdom alone.1 Bleeding events are among the most common complications; reported incidences vary between 2.2% and 14%.2 Peri-procedural bleeding has a negative effect on patients’ outcomes—as indicated by higher mortality and morbidity and diminished quality of life—and on metrics of healthcare provision such as length of stay and associated costs.3 Large registries of US patients undergoing PCI have shown that 12.1% of in-hospital mortality is attributable to post-procedural bleeding and suggest a significant association between major bleeding and in-hospital mortality across all strata of bleeding risk.4 The 2011 American Heart Association guidelines state that all patients should be evaluated for risk of bleeding before PCI (class of recommendation 1, level of evidence C).5

Multiple sclerosis: summary of NICE guidance

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is the most common cause of serious physical disability in working age adults and affects over 100 000 people in the United Kingdom.1 It causes a range of symptoms and disability and requires a broad multidisciplinary approach. A 2008 report, however, suggested delays and limited access to specialist services for affected people.2 This article summarises the most recent recommendations from the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE).3 The guideline scope does not include disease modifying drugs as these have been covered in other NICE guidance.
