A no-deal Brexit threatens the very existence of the NHS


It is increasingly clear that failure to reach a deal with the EU on the terms of Brexit would be a disaster for the NHS. The repercussions of a no-deal Brexit could be so catastrophic as to destabilise the NHS to the point of disintegration. - all I see is a whole load of BS assertions with no basis or evidence. bilateral agreements/cooperation can be had without the need for political union. Recruitment can be specifically catered for when we have the SOVEREIGNTY to decide what specific immigration policy we would like to supplement the NHS staffing. Pharma already seek separate authorisation to market their products for countries outside the EU, e.g. the USA! Economy nose dives? There's only 1 thing that's been proven time and time again in history to boost the economy - less government spending/intervention/socialism, and conversely more free market capitalism. Its time to let go of your 'religion' that is the NHS, and to consider what's best for the country as a whole.
