The evidence submitted to the Committee’s pre-referendum inquiry into the impact of EU membership on health and social care has demonstrated the wide range of areas in which EU membership affects this policy area. The Committee is now seeking views on what the most important issues are to which attention will need to be paid in the withdrawal negotiations and what outcomes should be sought from them.
The Committee also invites views on what risks and opportunities for health and social care arise from the UK’s withdrawal from the EU, and how the Government should seek to mitigate the risks, and take advantage of the opportunities.
Submissions should not exceed 3000 words and should reach the Committee by Friday 28 October 2016.
