NHS Overseas Workers Day 2021

One Trust, many nationalities

Founded by The Doctors’ Association UK, Overseas NHS Workers Day was created to take the opportunity to recognise the extraordinary contribution made in the fight against COVID-19 by those who have migrated to the United Kingdom.


Fulfilling all kinds of different roles within the National Health Service, almost 200 different nationalities are represented within the NHS in England alone and make up almost 14% of NHS staff.
