The EU Settlement Scheme early access pilot for all EU citizen health and social care staff currently working in the UK is closing soon on Friday 21st December 2018.
In advance of the UK’s exit from the EU on 29 March 2019, the UK government has committed to protecting the rights of EU citizens and their family members currently living in the UK. This includes the right to live here, work here and access public services such as healthcare and benefits.
In order to apply for the early access pilot you will need to be working in the health and social care sector, and you are:
- an EU citizen and have a valid biometric passport (this is an e-passport which has a digital chip); or
- a non-EU family member of an EU citizen and have a biometric residence card with ‘EU Right to Reside’ on the back, which you applied for on or after 6 April 2015.
For more information on the scheme and/or to apply visit the Gov.UK website here.
