We will provide you with a range of resources, which are intended to help you understand more about Brexit and the implications for our European workers and the wider NHS.
NHS European Office
The influence and impact of EU affairs on the NHS has significantly increased over time, with various aspects of domestic health policy now being intrinsically linked with EU policy. The vote to leave the EU will certainly have far-reaching implications for the NHS. The NHS European Office is following developments very closely and is busy considering the possible implications for the NHS.
Get the latest from the NHS EU office.
Diversity and Inclusion
The Equality and Human Rights Commission have produced a number of resources to help tackle any form of discrimination that EU staff may be subject to as a result of the vote to leave the EU, these are:
- A briefing document which gives help and advice on how to report race hate crimes.
- A factsheet that provides useful information and support if you're worried about racism at work or elsewhere.

EU research funding
Horizon 2020 is the biggest European Union research and innovation programme with over €70 billion of funds available. The programme of work topics to be funded in 2016 and 2017 have now been published by the European Commission.
Resources and guidance documents are available to help you understand EU funding, taking into account the 2016 and 2017 work topics. You can find these on the NHS European Office web pages.
We will update this page with the latest guidance and resources when they become available.
