Add your support for health and care Brexit impact review

Section: Policy into PracticeType: News Item Date Published: 9th November 2018

Brendan O'Hara MP has tabled a Private Members Bill in the House of Commons and you can add your support.

The development comes in response to concerns from third sector organisations across Scotland that changes in rules related to the EU workforce, medicines research and funding. The Bill, if passed by the House of Commons, would require an independent evaluation of the impact of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018, and of Brexit, upon the health and social care sectors across the UK.

Dozens of organisations, including the ALLIANCE, SCVO and Camphill Scotland, have already added their support to the call for an impact assessment and we hope that you will add to this growing voice.

If your organisation would be keen to offer your support to the principle that an independent evaluation should be undertaken, please get in touch with Andrew Strong, Assistant Director (Policy and Communications) at the ALLIANCE at andrew.strong@alliance-scotland.org.uk or by phone on 0141 404 0231.
