EU UK science pact is vital says Brexit Health Alliance

Brexit health alliance

Responding to the Prime Minister’s Brexit speech today, Niall Dickson, co-chair of the Brexit Health Alliance, said:

“A far-reaching science and innovation pact with the EU is vital for the UK and the rest of Europe and it is great to see the Prime Minister championing this, as well as a commitment to cover our share of costs to take part in EU programmes.

“It was also good to hear the desire to remain part of the European Medicines Agency, to abide by its rules, and make appropriate financial commitments. That is the best way to make sure patients have quick access to the drugs and treatments they need.

“For the Alliance, the key in all this is to put patients first - both the UK Government and European Commission must make public health and patient safety a priority in the negotiations. Nothing less will do.”
