Over the last 12 months, the priority of the NHS European Office has been to engage with stakeholders, both in the UK and the EU, to assess the impact of Brexit on the NHS. This work has included influencing decision-makers to prioritise the interests of patients, and the healthcare and research they rely on, during the Brexit negotiations.
In parallel to its Brexit related work, the NHS European Office has continued to engage with the more traditional EU agenda by monitoring and engaging with EU policy and legislative developments of key importance for the health service, and providing advice to the NHS on emerging EU funding opportunities.
