Brexit continues to dominate the minds of people, communities and the public sector. As things stand, the UK is due to leave the EU on 29 March 2019, regardless of whether there is a deal with the EU or not. Many aspects of the UK’s health and social care services have been influenced by EU policies and legislation, such as workforce, research, finance, medicines and public health.
This seminar will be an opportunity to hear from a range of experts on the current position in key areas and will inform stakeholders on:
- the potential implications of Brexit for the NHS and social care;
- update on the UK’s position;
- provide an overview of how the NHS and social care have worked together to prepare and respond to the implications;
- to identify further actions and activities that may be required by individual organisations and national bodies to ensure that the NHS and social care are ready to respond to a deal or no deal
