 FG to Migtating Doctors:  UK won’t pay you hazard allowance

Nigerian doctors planning to emigrate to the United Kingdom won’t be paid hazard allowance if they do so.

The Minister of Health, Dr. Osagie Ehanire, who stated this during the briefing of the Presidential Task Force on Covid-19 on Thursday, in response to a question regarding the failed attempt of 58 doctors to travel to the UK last week said UK only pay salary.

Medical doctors in Nigeria earned N5,000 or $12.95 as monthly hazard allowances. The 58 doctors, who had received provisional employment in the UK, were stopped by the Nigeria Immigration Service at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos, last week because they did not have visas.

“I think we are one of the few countries giving hazard allowance. This UK where they are going, there is no hazard allowance, they don’t give doctors hazard allowance but you just get you salary, that is all because I have spoken to the doctors there.

“They say it is part of your job and that is what you are trained for. They don’t pay you anything but here apart from your salary we try to add something to it with the hope that you will stay. We also appeal to state governments to prioritise employment of doctors some of whom have not been employed.”
