EU flags

02 / 03 / 2017

In the first in our series of Brexit podcasts, Elisabetta Zanon director of the NHS European Office, explores the implications Brexit will have on the health and care sector.

Speaking from Brussels, Elisabetta interviews Kate Ling and Sarah Collen, senior policy managers at the NHS European Office to find out the key pressures on the NHS in the wake of the UK leaving the European Union (EU) such as:

  • migration and the rights of EU health and care workers in the UK
  • the implications of the reduction of value in the currency
  • recruitment of staff from the EU
  • the impact on research and innovation within the NHS.
