The Impact of Brexit on Health

WITH THE clock ticking down inexorably to March 2019, the Prime Minister has started up the spin machine, to promise, cajole and threaten her way through the Westminster Parliament; all to deliver a ‘Blind Brexit’! We can start to see the real impact of leaving the EU as the Political Declaration - the outline proposals for the future relationship - is full of vague aspirational phrases but no mention of ‘frictionless’ trade. It is clear that we will be outside some of the key agencies of the EU, agencies that it took the Brexit process for the UK Government to even recognise were of great benefit. That old saying: “you don’t know what you’ve got…”

While this Brexit mess is due to a chronic, and on-going, schism in the Tory party, anti-European sentiment has been created by politicians and the media using the EU as a convenient whipping-boy to blame for domestic failures. No-one celebrated the rights and opportunities we gained from EU membership over the last 40 years, including significant contributions to individual, public and environmental health. Instead, we heard apocryphal stories about straight bananas. People are finally beginning to recognise the impact Brexit will have on our health; not just the UK Government’s warnings about stockpiling drugs in case of a No-Deal Brexit, but the direct effects on health and healthcare, even if there is some sort of deal.
