Devastating impact No Deal Brexit could have on the NHS – Jon Ashworth

Jonathan Ashworth MP, Labour’s Shadow Health Secretary, responding to a report from the National Audit Office that highlights there is further significant work to be done by the government if the UK leaves the EU with no deal, and the impact on the health and social care sector, said:

“Here we have another body warning of the devastating impact a no deal Brexit could have on the NHS.

“From the supply of medicines and patient access to care, to the impact on the health workforce: no part of the health service will be left untouched.

“It is scandalous that by stubbornly refusing to rule out No Deal, Boris Johnson is putting patients’ health and lives at risk.”
