The Government is committed to ensuring leaving the European Union is a success for the health and social care sector as well as the United Kingdom as a whole.

All relevant policy teams within the Department are involved with this work in relation to the health and social sector, including assessing the implications of the UK leaving the EU on their area, to help ensure the best outcome for the sector.

Every Government department, including the Department of Health, will be proceeding in the only responsible way possible: planning to deliver a smooth exit under any scenario. This includes preparing the UK for the future economic partnership we hope to negotiate with the EU as well as the very unlikely scenario in which no mutually satisfactory agreement can be reached and the UK exits without a deal.
