Doctors and nurses demand UK Government drops plans for ‘nightmare’ Brexit

Health staff in Tayside and Fife have urged the UK Government to drop its “nightmare” Brexit plans, which they say will cost lives. Four practitioners from the area signed a letter warning that leaving the EU under Theresa May’s blueprint, or with no plan at all, will be “terrible for Britain and for patients’ health”. They also despaired at the thousands of EU national colleagues already leaving the NHS. Meanwhile, an expert report commissioned by the Scottish Government found the Conservative administration’s immigration plans could reduce the number of workers in Scotland by up to 5% over the next two decades.
