EU Exit Information

Homepage » About us » EU Exit Information

The response for the NHS to EU Exit and a potential ‘no deal’ is being led by the Department of Health and Social Care.

Locally we are meeting across the health system and with our partners to ensure we are sighted on potential implications and assured we are as prepared as we can be.

The government has produced some FAQs for NHS staff about continuity of medical supplies. It might be useful for you to have available if patients ask specific questions.

You can find it here:
https://www.england.nhs.uk/eu-exit/medicines/medicines-faq/|

It covers issues such as:

• What is being done to make sure medicines remain available?

• Should GPs provide longer prescriptions?

• What about medicines with short self lives, what about vaccines etc
