We have put detailed ‘no deal’ contingency plans in place for the continuity of supply of medicines and medical products, continuity of reciprocal healthcare arrangements, and the health and social care workforce.</p><p>We recognise that a ‘no deal’ exit would affect a wide range of areas across the health and care system, and the Department is working hard to mitigate these risks.</p><p>We are asking the National Health Service, and everyone in the health and social care system, to continue their planning. We are confident that if everyone does what they need to do, the potential risks of leaving without a deal can be mitigated successfully.</p> more like this

answer text <p>A joint meeting of the governing bodies of the North and West Hampshire Clinical Commissioning Groups decided in November 2017 not to take forward a proposal for a new critical treatment hospital for north Hampshire, following a detailed review of options. The local health economy is now working in partnership to consider other future service configuration options through their Transforming Care Services Board, informed by the view of local patients and the public.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The Government recognises the need for the National Health Service to be able to continue to recruit effectively from abroad when freedom of movement ends. The Immigration White Paper, ‘The UK’s future skills-based immigration system’, published in December 2018, sets out the foundation for a single immigration system, where it is workers’ skills that matter, not where they come from. This system will remove the cap on skilled migrants, abolish the requirement to undertake a Resident Labour Market Test and significantly improve the timeliness of being able to apply for a visa.</p><p>Additionally, legislation introduced on 7 March 2019 means health and care professionals with professional qualifications from European Union and Swiss institutions who are currently registered can continue to practise in the United Kingdom as they do now, guaranteeing their ability to work in the NHS.</p><p> </p> more like this

The ‘NHS Help Us Help You Winter Pressures’ campaign budget for 2019/20 has been reduced by 7.5% when compared to the budget for 2018/19.

It commits to delivering 5,000 additional clinical placements for nursing students, 7,500 further Nursing Associates, increasing undergraduate supply and broadening routes into nursing.</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p>
