OET is supporting a pilot programme that is helping to upskill nurses from the state of Kerala, India, who are coming to work in the UK.
OET will hold its Healthcare Communication Forum 2019 at Marriot Hotel, Kochi on 21st November 2019. The Forum aims to focus on the shared responsibility of healthcare stakeholders and English language assessors in ensuring patient safety and quality of care.
OET launches a new whitepaper on the role of communication in delivering patient safety, in honour of the World Health Organization's inaugural World Patient Safety Day.
Doctors, nurses, dentists and midwives applying for Tier 2 (General) visas no longer need to meet a separate English language requirement where they have already done so as part of registering with the relevant regulatory body.
