Do we really understand the role of the EU on health? When we talk about Europe we often talk about freedoms, migration, business and economics. We discuss leaving the EU, due to the impact of bureaucracy, migration issues and the economy; on the other hand we very rarely discuss the impact the EU has on health.

  • Do we really understand the impact of the EU on healthcare in this country and does it matter?
  • Are there dangers to healthcare and the healthcare industry in this country from leaving the EU or staying in?
  • What opportunities are there for the UK to learn from other countries health policies and systems and capitalise on our membership.
