The Department of Health and Social Care published guidance on actions the health and care system in England should take to prepare for a ‘no-deal’ scenario. This guidance includes a summary of seven areas where the government is focussing ‘no deal’ exit contingency planning in the health and care system, and where local action is required. These include:

  • Supply of medicines and vaccines
  • Supply of medical devices and clinical consumables
  • Supply of non-clinical consumables, goods and services
  • Workforce
  • Reciprocal healthcare
  • Research and clinical trials
  • Data sharing, processing and access

From a workforce perspective it is helpful to know that ‘the current expectation is that there will not be a significant degree of health and care staff leaving around exit day.’ However, we will keep you updated as more guidance and updates become available. The guidance is available here.
