Health and Social Care Committee seek clarity on Brexit

26 March 2018  

 

Dr Sarah Wollaston, Chair of the Health and Social Care Committee has written to Jeremy Hunt seeking further clarity following the publication on 19th March of the Draft Agreement on the withdrawal of the UK from the EU and the European Atomic Energy Community.

This letter follows a letter sent by the Committee to the Health and Social Care Secretary on 15th February regarding Brexit transitional arrangements and also the publication of the Fourth Report of the Health and Social Care committee on Brexit: medicines, medical devices and substances of human origin.

The letter concentrates on three core issues:

  • Whether the UK will continue to have a meaningful role in shaping future policy within the EMA
  • If ‘associate membership’ of EU agencies is a realistic ambition
  • Assurances of stakeholder scrutiny and Government transparency post-Brexit

From Factory to Pharmacy

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.
