These findings from the BMA are a stark wakeup – Blomfield

Paul
Blomfield MP, Shadow Brexit Minister
, responding to a BMA report that reveals
more than four in ten European doctors are considering leaving the UK following
Brexit, said:

“Labour
has been warning the Government for months now that its failure to guarantee the
status of Europeans living and working here is not in the national interest.

“These
findings from the BMA are a stark wakeup call about the consequences of this
uncertainty for a health service already at breaking point.

“The
Government must act urgently and guarantee the status of Europeans – for our
health service, for our economy and to create goodwill amongst our future
negotiating partners.

“It’s
failure to do so is an act of self-harm.”
