In line with the rest of Government, the Department is analysing the impact of the United Kingdom’s withdrawal from the European Union. For the Department this includes understanding the financial implications of Brexit for the National Health Service and wider care system and, where appropriate, mitigating for any risks associated with different negotiated options.
The Department is working to ensure the best outcome for the health and social care system. All relevant policy teams within the Department are involved with this work and are assessing the implications of the UK leaving the EU on their area. This includes working with NHS England and other arm’s length bodies.
