Brexit and the future of the NHS

On Sat 13 January, members of West Berkshire Stronger Together took to Northbrook Street in Newbury to talk to residents about Brexit and the future of the NHS.

The potential impact of Brexit on the NHS is extremely concerning. In a recent Lancet article, ‘How will Brexit affect health and health services in the UK?’, the effects on health were described as ranging “from somewhat negative to very negative, with few opportunities [and] the harder the Brexit, the worse the effects, with no deal being the worst of all.”

It was a good to have this opportunity to talk to local people and listen to their concerns.
