EU Exit Plan

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.
