According to sources, NHS officials have set up an assessment centre in New Delhi and are currently considering 150 applications from Indian doctors, who are due to undergo interviews via  Skype next week and begin a four-year spell in Britain this summer.

As medical training in India follows the same curriculum as in UK, the successful candidates may not have to undergo the exams. However, they will be required to take language tests.

Interviews via Skype for this new programme are due to begin next week, followed by face-to-face interviews in New Delhi in the month of May before successful candidates start work in UK in August.

The programme is attempting to recruit junior doctors who have just finished medical school, and trainees who have had two years’ training since medical school but have yet to complete specialist training.
