Further advice and support

We’re doing everything we can to run PLAB 1 and 2 as regularly and as safely as possible, and to minimise the impact on candidates as far as we can. We’re working closely with organisations that support overseas doctors so that they have the latest information for you.

We appreciate that you may have lots of questions, so if you need any other support, please email the PLAB team

You can also call the British Medical Association’s (BMA) helpline on 0300 123 1233. Advisers can provide direct support and introduce you to other teams who can help, including immigration and wellbeing services. They have also created a COVID-19 hub with practical guidance for international doctors
