Pro-remain campaigners and healthcare professionals to head to Bromsgrove to discuss No Deal impact on the NHS

PRO-REMAIN campaigners from ‘Bromsgrove for EU’ and Worcestershire for Europe will be holding a ‘Brexit Clinic’ on Bromsgrove High Street tomorrow.

The group will be joined by health experts and will be outline the impact it feels a No Deal Brexit would have on the NHS.

Healthcare professionals and activists, led by neurologist Dr David Nicholl who whistleblew to the BBC over No Deal plans in April, will be in the town centre from 10am to midday.

Dr Nicholl said: “I became increasingly anxious over the plans for No Deal when I was having to make difficult decisions about which drugs should be flown rather than ferried in.

“I was one of only two neurologists in the country who had access to this data, which is why I spoke out publically, as there was a clear risk to patient safety.

“Nothing has changed, and it is interesting to note in the leadership debate, Sajid Javid MP, highlighted we had not prepared properly for No Deal, yet we now know that there may well be additional problems in October, for example with flu vaccination supplies, which cannot be stockpiled.”

Campaigners will answer questions from the public on the effect Brexit will have for the NHS in terms of patient care, access to pharmaceuticals, clinical trials and research, as well as highlighting the positive role the EU has to the NHS.
