Preparing for EU Exit

Please visit for full details on below information.


The Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) is leading the response to EU Exit across the health and care sector. DHSC is also the key contact for the sector with the Department for Exiting the EU (DExEU) and the Cabinet Office. NHS England and NHS Improvement are working closely with DHSC to best prepare the NHS.

DHSC has produced EU Exit Operational Guidance which outlines the actions that providers and commissioners of health and social care services should take to prepare for, and manage, the risks of a no-deal exit scenario.

Please keep an eye on these web pages as in the coming weeks we will be publishing specific information on the key areas of work listed below:

  • Continuity of supply
  • Workforce
  • Reciprocal healthcare and overseas cost recovery
  • Clinical Trial Studies and European Reference Networks (ERNs)
  • Data
