MPs highlight impact of Brexit on social care

The House of Commons Health Committee has published a report on the effect of Brexit on health and social care.

With more than 60,000 people from EU countries outside the UK working in the NHS and approximately 90,000 in adult social care, the committee maintained that the UK will benefit from the presence of EU staff in health and social care post-Brexit.

Furthermore, the group of MPs warn that the impact of Brexit on the morale ‘is concerning and the uncertainty they face is unwelcome’, stating that more emphasis needs to be placed on health issues in negotiations with Brussels.

Brexit and health and social care—people & process also emphasised that the impact Brexit will have on people who rely on the EU's reciprocal healthcare arrangements should not be underestimated.
