Getting a Brexit deal that works for the NHS
A briefing from the Nuffield Trust argues that the NHS could face costs of almost half a billion pounds if retired British people living in other EU countries decide to return to the UK in the event of their healthcare being withdrawn after Brexit. This figure could be substantially higher if the NHS has to pay to replace staff if EU migration is reduced, or if it faces a rise in the cost of medicines. The briefing also estimates that care homes and home-care agencies could end up as many as 70,000 staff short by 2025/26, if migration of unskilled workers from the EU is halted after Brexit.
