The Lincolnshire Refugee Doctor Project,

   aims to create the best possible scheme in Lincolnshire for supporting refugee doctors back into medical practice in the UK. This includes:

  • helping them to settle with their families into Lincolnshire;
  • refreshing their skills, knowledge and confidence;
  • re-qualifying to UK standards and securing employment appropriate to their professional qualifications


The programme will deliver these benefits:

  1. Humanitarian support to refugee doctors and their families
  2. Humanitarian opportunities for people and organisations in Lincolnshire to help refugee families
  3. Workforce stabilisation: creating a further source of doctors for a struggling community where doctors retiring and leaving far outnumber new doctors arising
  4. Workforce diversification and development, inclusion of a pool of doctors with very different stories and journeys into the Lincolnshire medical environment
