On 22 September 2014, the government requested the MAC to carry out a partial review of the shortage occupation lists for the UK and Scotland.

The commission said:

Following the MACs comprehensive review of the SOL, published in February 2013, the Government has been made aware of a small number of occupations where there may be a case for inclusion on or removal from the SOL.

These occupations are:

  • graduate occupations within the health sector including consultant roles, nurses and training grades
  • graduate occupations in the digital technology sector
  • linesworkers in the energy industry

The MACs findings and recommendations can be found in the full report and press release (PDF, 64.6KB, 3 pages).
