Call to evaluate the impact of Brexit on health & social care

Camphill Scotland, the ALLIANCE, SCVO, CCPS, Disability Wales, Inclusion Scotland, NICVA, QNIS, the RCN, Scottish Care and  87 other organisations including the Human Rights Consortium Scotland are supporting a Bill tabled by Brendan O’Hara MP for the evaluation of the impact of Brexit upon the health and social care sector.

The organisations believe it is necessary to safeguard the interests of the many vulnerable people who rely on the contribution of EU citizens to the provision of health and social care. This includes people with disabilities, children and young people, older people, unpaid carers and those with long term health conditions.

The Bill was lodged in the House of Commons by Brendan O’Hara MP on 14 November 2018 with cross party support. It is scheduled for debate on 25 January 2019.
