During the Implementation Period, the United Kingdom would the UK would no longer be a Member State of the European Union, but market access for goods, including medicines, would continue on current terms.</p><p> </p><p>During the Implementation Period, it will be the Government’s top priority to negotiate a future economic partnership between the UK and the EU. In the Government’s White Paper we committed to securing the freest and most frictionless trade possible in goods between the UK and the EU and to agree on healthcare arrangements.</p><p> </p><p>Whilst a negotiated deal remains the preferred outcome, it is appropriate that preparations are made for all scenarios. The Government has been accelerating preparations that assure the continuity of supply of National Health Service medicines in the event of the UK leaving the EU without a deal.</p><p> </p><p>In August 2018, the Department wrote to all pharmaceutical companies that supply prescription-only and pharmacy medicines to the UK that come from, or via, the EU/European Economic Area (EEA) asking them to ensure a minimum of six weeks additional supply in the UK, over and above existing business-as-usual buffer stocks, by 29 March 2019. We recognise, however, that certain medicines cannot be reasonably stockpiled. Where these medicines are imported from the EU or EEA, we have asked that suppliers ensure in advance plans to air freight these medicines from the EU in the event of a ‘no deal’ exit.</p><p> </p><p>We are working to ensure we have sufficient roll-on, roll-off freight capacity on alternative routes to enable these vital products to continue to move freely in to the UK. Medicines and other medical products will be prioritised on these routes to ensure that the flow of all these products will continue unimpeded after 29 March 2019.</p><p> </p><p>Throughout enacting our plans, we have received very good engagement from industry who share our aims of ensuring that the continuity of supply of medicines and medical products for patients is maintained and able to cope with any potential delays at the border that may arise in the short term in the event of a ‘no deal’ EU exit.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Permanent Secretary of the Department of Health for Northern Ireland gave his clearance for The Health Services (Cross-Border Health Care and Miscellaneous Amendments) (Northern Ireland) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 on 31 January 2019, to issue to the Department of Health and Social Care for laying in Westminster. This Statutory Instrument, and other Northern Ireland Statutory Instruments, which have been laid are in line with the wider approach of making the necessary, technical fixes to European Union retained law ahead of exit day, to ensure a functioning statute book in Northern Ireland. The United Kingdom Government remains committed to restoring devolution in Northern Ireland, and this is particularly important in the context of EU exit where we want devolved Ministers to take the necessary actions to prepare Northern Ireland for exit. In the continued absence of a Northern Ireland Executive, UK Government Ministers therefore decided that in the interest of legal certainty in Northern Ireland, the UK Government would take through the necessary secondary legislation at Westminster for Northern Ireland, in close consultation with the Northern Ireland departments. These instruments make technical fixes, rather than any policy changes, as befits the powers in Section 8 of the European Union Withdrawal Act 2018.</p><p> </p><p>Department of Health for Northern Ireland officials completed a legislative review in August 2017 as part of Northern Ireland Civil Service’s preparations for EU exit. The legislation, which transposed the Cross-Border Healthcare Directive (Directive 2011/24/EU), was identified as requiring significant amendment, and as being essential for exit day to avoid confusion and to provide clarity around entitlements to healthcare arrangements. The regulations were developed by the Northern Ireland Civil Service, and the Permanent Secretary of Northern Ireland gave his consent for these regulations, and for the instrument to be passed through Westminster.</p>

Many companies across all sectors, have already taken measures to protect their own supply chain to avoid the possible delays at the Dover Straits.
