If you have been granted refugee status or given leave to enter or remain in the United Kingdom on humanitarian protection grounds, we waive the scrutiny fee for your application. You will not be able to apply online and will instead need to download a paper application from our website here. Please enclose a letter from the Home Office with the application, confirming you have refugee or humanitarian protection status. We ask that you provide us with as much information as possible with your application. If you are unable to provide all of the information needed (for example, because documents have been destroyed or you cannot obtain them), you must include a letter which explains why you cannot provide it. For refugee allied health professionals seeking advice and information on how to find jobs, gain experience and other useful assistance, NHS employers has online information.
