In his first interview since taking office, Mr Lansley told the Daily Mail that he would also end the scandal of foreign doctors who cannot speak English working in the NHS.
He said he was prepared to pass new laws if necessary to ensure that GPs \’have the relevant language skills to ensure that they are safe\’.
Don\’t think you can do that you know?
EU rules…..if someone is passed as professionally fit and proper within the EU then you\’re not allowed to discriminate against them on the basis of their qualifications. Richard will know more about this than I do but I asm certainly under the impression that you\’re not allowed to put language, or any other kind of, tests in the way.
