The Government continues to monitor and analyse overall staffing levels across the health and social care sector, and we are working across Government to ensure there will continue to be sufficient staff to deliver the high-quality services on which patients rely following the United Kingdom’s exit from the European Union. We are working with EU nationals to ensure that they stay in the UK, and feel welcome and encouraged to do so.
