At 44%, NZ has the highest proportion of International Medical Graduates (IMGs) in its workforce amongst OECD countries, and around a quarter of NZ’s nurses are internationally qualified. NZ’s health system would simply not function without the services of import professionals. But just 30% of UK IMGs remain in NZ within two years of registration. Professor Robin Gauld reports on reasons why UK IMGs leave and considers how we might better harness and utilise the knowledge which international professionals bring to our health system.
