The Alliance was established to make sure that the interests of those who use health services, as well as healthcare commissioners and providers, educators, researchers, and the healthcare industry are reflected in the negotiations as the formal process of leaving the EU gets underway. There are five key asks from the Alliance, which you can see above.
Key briefings from the Brexit Health Alliance:
Briefing 1: Maintaining reciprocal healthcare for patients after Brexit
Briefing 2: Brexit and the impact on patient access to medicines and medical technologies
Briefing 3: The impact of Brexit: Patient access to medical research
Briefing 4: Protecting the public's health across Europe after Brexit
Government confirms that Brexit will #donoharm to public health
National Voices signed a letter along with 39 other health and medical organisations, asking the House of Lords to protect the public’s health as we leave the EU by voting for a 'Do no harm' amendment at Report Stage of the EU Withdrawal Bill. As a result, during the Third Reading of the EU (Withdrawal) Bill in the House of Lords on 16 May, the UK Government confirmed that the ‘do not harm’ public health duty will remain after the UK leaves the European Union.
National Voices is proud to have been part of a coalition of 63 health organisations, led by the Faculty of Public Health, who have campaigned for this committment. Find out more on the Faculty of Public Health's website.
