Further advice and support
We understand that this will be distressing news for many doctors who find themselves in difficult positions, waiting to progress into UK practice.
We appreciate that you may have lots of questions, and there is a range of places you can go for further support:
- Speak to one of our advisers. We’ll be happy to help.
- Read this blog from our Head of Assessment Richard Hankins. He answers some frequently asked questions about PLAB and discusses what we’re doing to make sure we’re able to restart our tests as soon as possible.
- 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.
- If you have any other queries, please email the PLAB team.
