The European Union Exit Operational Readiness Guidance developed by the Department, NHS England and NHS Improvement, published on 21 December 2018, lists the actions that providers and commissioners of health and care services in England should take if the United Kingdom leaves the EU without a deal. This will ensure organisations are prepared for, and can manage, the risks in a no deal scenario.

All organisations that received this guidance were advised to undertake local EU Exit readiness planning, local risk assessments and plan for wider potential impacts. Risk assessments were to be undertaken by providers and commissioners of NHS services at a local level.

In October 2018, National Health Service trusts were also asked to carry out a self-assessment exercise related only to non-clinical goods and services received by NHS trusts from external suppliers.
