Navigating Brexit: what next for the NHS?

Join the BMA and the BMJ to look at the impact of Brexit on health services across the UK - from workforce and regulation, to reciprocal healthcare and medical research, there’s barely a part of the health service that will be unaffected by the UK’s decision to leave the EU. 

With negotiations now reaching their final, critical stage, this is a vital opportunity to hear from experts in the field and put your questions to the panel.  

Speakers include:

  • Dr Chaand Nagpaul, BMA council chair 
  • Keynote Speech: Dr Paul Williams MP, Health Select Committee and GP 
  • Panel 1: Brexit and the NHS workforce: Dr Terry John, BMA International Committee Chair, Maria Trewern, RCN Council Chair and Ben Morrin, Workforce Director, University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
  • Panel 2: Brexit and patients: Mark Dayan, Policy and Public Affairs Analyst, Nuffield Trust and Ruth Taillon, Director, Centre for Cross Border Studies
  • Panel 3: Brexit and research: Dr Matthew Shaw, Medical Director, Great Ormond Street Hospital and Louise Wren, Policy Advisor, Wellcome Trust
  • Panel 4: “In conversation…Brexit, Parliament and the Public”: Gideon Skinner, Research Director, Ipsos MORI



This event took place on Friday 16 November 2018, 10am - 1pm at BMA House and is available to be viewed via webcast.
