Brexit Health Alliance

National Voices, the coalition of charities focusing on person-centred health and care, is a founding member of the new Brexit Health Alliance, a group of organisations convened by the NHS Confederation to consider the implications of Brexit for healthcare. The Brexit Health Alliance has identified five key issues on which they will be pressing Brexit negotiators on both sides:

  • Research & Innovation
  • Aligned Regulation
  • Reciprocal Healthcare
  • Public Health
  • Funding

The potential loss of doctors, nurses and other key staff if EU workers is also a major concern of National Voices, as well as many Alliance members. Work on this is being led by a separate group, the Cavendish Coalition, which involves employers, trade unions and professional bodies from health and social care.

The latest blog from National Voices on the potential implications of Brexit can be found here:https://www.nationalvoices.org.uk/node/1987 This page also has a link to a more detailed briefing on the five key issues mentioned above.
