The risks to the safety and efficacy of the patient’s health pose a direct threat to the risks of UK membership (Brexit) if these are not adequately managed by the government until the time left for withdrawal – is published on Wednesday by the highest level professional organization of the NHS hospital nursing staff warnings.
The Royal College of Nursing (RCN), in a letter to the British parliamentary party, including the conservative Prime Minister Theresa May, also urges a new referendum to decide on Brexit’s conditionality, but Downing Street dismissed it immediately.
The spokeswoman for the London government’s office said Wednesday that no referendum could be “under any circumstances” because the majority of Britons had opted for a referendum on EU membership in June 2016.
Maria Trewern, chair of the RCN council of 435,000 members, emphasized in a letter sent to party leaders: the discussions within the membership made it clear to the panel that Brexit would have many consequences in the patient care system.
According to the call, the risks of exit – if they can not find a credible solution – can endanger the health of the population and have a serious impact on the sustainability of safe and effective patient care both in the short and long term.
The letter from RCN mentions amongst the risks of ‘dilution’ of employment standards and employee rights and the fact that obstacles may be raised to the cross-border flow of expertise, expertise and research results.
The NHS nursing staff member’s special interest organization also highlights the supply risks that would arise if it failed to avoid restoring physical border controls between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland after the UK’s EU membership.
British healthcare professional organizations have already drawn attention to the supply risks associated with Brex.
According to recent data from the UK Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC), almost 1107 new employees have been registered in the organization since the European Economic Area (EEA), which, in addition to EU countries, is closely involved in contractual cooperation with the European Union Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein are also members.
According to NMC data, this was a 89 percent fall in annual comparison, a year earlier, more than ten thousand skilled nurses took up new jobs from EEA countries in NHS institutions.
