The NHS Confederation is playing a key role in analysing the implications of the UK’s vote to leave the EU on the NHS, enabling NHS organisations and senior decision-makers to make informed decisions about next steps.
Our expertise – spanning EU issues, employment practice and domestic politics – leaves us ideally placed to advocate for the NHS’s interests, advise on ways to mitigate risks and keep you informed of the latest developments.
Here you’ll find the latest health-relevant information on Brexit, an overview of how Brexit may affect health and care, including the key risks of a no-deal, and guidance on what NHS organisations should be doing in the event that the UK leaves the EU without an agreement in place.
You can also find out more about our activity to influence Brexit negotiations as part of the Brexit Health Alliance and the Cavendish Coalition.
