Brexit Health Alliance warning on medicines safety if ‘no-deal’ Brexit

Niall Dickson

Responding to a warning that the UK would drop out of a Europe-wide initiative to protect patients from fake medicines, Niall Dickson, co-chair of the Brexit Health Alliance, said:

“It would be a tragedy were the UK not to be a part of this new system which ultimately protects patients from fake medicines. And it is another reason why the growing prospect of leaving the EU with no deal is a matter of such concern. 

“No patient should suffer as a result of Brexit. A ‘no-deal’ without alternative arrangements to protect patients is simply not acceptable and could put lives at risk.”
