As a doctor, why choose Sanctuary International?

This is why we offer all our doctors arriving from overseas a free, yet thorough, relocation support service as part of our recruitment process. As one of the leading healthcare recruitment companies in the UK, NHS trusts and private healthcare employers lean on us for our seamless approach in finding and placing overseas doctors.

Once we have found you the perfect job, we make every effort to ensure that you feel supported in your journey to the UK. There is a lot to consider, including your new UK living costs. However, we can offer advice and guidance on compliance and documentation checking, VISA applications, GMC registration, English language testing, accommodation and travel.
