  • A UK based charity working in North Uganda, which assists Ugandan nationals and South Sudanese refugees, is looking for some advice on Ugandan employment law and an understanding of the Ugandan and South Sudanese culture concerning employment within families and sponsored graduates. The charity has paid for the training of a medic and would now like to employ them in their charity sponsored clinic. If you can help with advice, please reply here or direct to OSCAR.

    • Lynne, do they have residency in Europe and if so in which country? As far as I understand, the British Government has guaranteed NHS access to Brits living in the EU who have been affected by Brexit. If I find the law relating to this I'll paste it here. But have a look on UKCEN web page, you will find a lot of support there.
