Abstract

This report highlights the key challenges facing the EU10 as a result of the high number of health professionals leaving to work abroad, focusing on specific problems and identifying topics for further research. A thorough analysis of the consequences is critical, since it appears the inflow of third-country nationals or return migration would not make up the shortfall caused by the outflow. However, as this is not equally true for all the countries, the report presents a differentiated picture between the countries concerned. The study draws on the results of two European research projects: Mobility of Health Professionals (MoHProf) and the Health Professional Mobility in the European Union Study (PROMeTHEUS). An executive summary is also available - see Related content.

    Since EU enlargement to the 10 central and eastern European Member States, much attention has been focused on migration from these countries to the former EU15. The outflow of one particular group, healthcare professionals, is high on the agenda in the affected Member States and research on the topic has already explored its causes, extent and consequences. However, less emphasis has been placed on identifying specific common problems in this country group and any possible solutions. This report aims to identify these key challenges and related issues, which could be the subject of further research, and which could also help policymakers alleviate this problem.
