PARLIMENTARY: Inquiry into impact of leaving the EU on health and social care in Scotland January 2018

25 January 2018
The Scottish Parliament's Health and Sport Committee is conducting an inquiry into the impact of Brexit on health and social care in Scotland. This is the RCN's response. 
The UK’s exit from the EU will have a profound impact on the nursing in a wide range of areas, ranging from workforce strategy and planning, regulation, standards, public health, research, employment and social law and cross-border exchange. The RCN believes that the Scottish Government must uphold high levels of patient safety standards, quality of care, as well as ensuring that the workforce supply chain is not adversely affected by this process of change or resulting outcomes.
