One-day inquiry into the All Wales Medical Performers List


During the Health, Social Care and Sport Committee’s inquiry into medical recruitment, concerns were raised regarding the Medical Performers List.

At its meeting on 5 July 2017, the Committee agreed to undertake a one-day inquiry to look at the following areas of concern:

  • The existence of separate Medical Performers Lists for England and Wales;
  • Ease of access to Medical Performers List registration for Doctors returning to Wales;
  • How the Medical Performers List registration process assesses the equivalence of medical training undertaken outside the UK.

As part of this process, we took evidence from relevant stakeholders; considered evidence from elsewhere within the UK, and took evidence from the Welsh Government on its approach to tackling the problem.
