NHS European Office Annual Report 2017 - 2018

09 / 04 / 2018

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.

This report provides an overview of the main activities conducted by the European Office in the course of 2017-2018, in the following main areas:

  • Assessing the impact of Brexit on the NHS (page 2-4)
  • Monitoring and influencing EU policy and legislation in the interest of the NHS (page 5-8)
  • Facilitating access to EU funds for NHS bodies and their partner organisations (page 9)
  • Supporting pan-European collaborations and sharing of successful European best practice (page 9-11)
