The Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) is leading the response to the EU Exit across the health and social care sectors in the event of the UK leaving the EU without a deal on 31st October 2019. At the Trust, in conjunction with NHS England, we have planned for a number of eventualities should a "no deal" occur which we will communicate nearer the time as and when required.
NHS England Website
As further information relating to the EU Exit preparations becomes available it will be published on the "Preparing for EU Exit" pages of the NHS England website here.
Supply of Medicines
Information for patients about the continuity of supply of medicines can be found on the NHS website here. The government is working with industry to make sure there is a continued supply of medicines, vaccines, medical devices and clinical consumables. Please note the advice to NOT stockpile medicines/vaccines beyond usual stock levels. For more information see FAQs on medicine supply.
