European Union (EU) exit - 2019

On this page, you will find information that will help to explain how the NHS is preparing for the UK exiting the EU.

The Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) is leading the response to EU Exit across the health and care sector and is working closely with NHS England and NHS Improvement to ensure that the NHS is best prepared.

The DHSC has produced guidance for all commissioners of health and social care services including CCGs to help them to prepare for and manage the risks of a no-deal exit.

What does this mean for me?

We have put contingency plans in place to ensure the continued supply of medicines and other medical products.

Please keep ordering your repeat prescriptions and taking your medicines as normal. It's very important you don't order more medicines than normal. If you do, then it may mean that other people won't be able to get their medicines.
