Letter to the Prime Minister on ‘no deal’ Brexit and health

People from across the health and care sector – including some of its most eminent figures – have delivered a sharp warning about the risks of a ‘no deal’ Brexit.

  • Communication and administration

Patient champions, carers, doctors, academics, and leaders of charities and professional bodies have signed a joint letter to the Prime Minister urging her to prevent the UK leaving the European Union without a negotiated agreement.

The letter, coordinated by the charity coalition National Voices, points out the risks to health of a ‘no deal’ Brexit. Despite the Government’s contingency planning, there are worrying implications for the supply of medicines, medical devices and other products, the availability of staff, reciprocal healthcare arrangements, and cross-border collaboration on patient safety, drug development and public health.
