London battles to keep hold of two main EU agencies
Financial Times, George Parker, 16 April 2017
Brexit secretary, David Davis, is hoping that the European Banking Authority and the European Medicines Agency (EMA) may not have to relocate from Canary Wharf after Brexit. The government has left open the possibility of keeping part of some EU agencies, at least in the short term, but the idea of the UK hosting key institutions after Brexit is unacceptable in Brussels. This month, Donald Tusk, European Council president, will set out the criteria for judging which city will replace London as the host of the agencies. EU leaders are expected to discuss the new base for the agencies at a summit on April 29th, where the 27 remaining member states will negotiate their Brexit stance.

As part of our mission to build awareness, understanding and appreciation of the vital importance of the healthcare distribution sector, we developed an infographic explaining the availability of medicines. It identifies the factors that can impact drug supply, as well as the measures that HDA members undertake day in, day out to help mitigate the risks of patients not receiving their medicines.See the Infographic
