The Brexit Health Alliance was established to make sure that the interests of those who use health services – as well as healthcare commissioners, providers and researchers – are reflected in the Brexit negotiations.
Starting today, Monday 16 October, the Alliance is running a week-long campaign to raise awareness of existing EU reciprocal healthcare arrangements, how patients/citizens in the UK and EU benefit from them, and what they would lose if these arrangements were discontinued post-Brexit. The campaign has been planned to come ahead of forthcoming Brexit negotiations where reciprocal healthcare arrangements are on the agenda.
You can find out more about reciprocal healthcare arrangements in the briefing that was published today, or listen to the latest Brexit Health Alliance podcast: ‘Why reciprocal healthcare arrangements post-Brexit matter for patients’.
We are keen to highlight the potential impact on people, rather than systems and organisations. As charities and organisations who represent the people these arrangements will affect, we would really appreciate your support on this campaign. Help us to apply pressure on negotiators to keep reciprocal healthcare issues high on the agenda in Brexit negotiations.
Keep up to date with the campaign’s development throughout the week with the hashtag #BrexitHealthAlliance.
