European Union Facts

Doctor Prescription Writing

This infographic outlines the key facts about the relationship between the NHS and the European Union. The UK’s referendum on EU membership takes place on the 23rd June, and one of the most highly-charged issues on both sides of the argument is the future of the National Health Service. While Leave campaigners believe the NHS will be in greater health outside the EU, recent government figures suggest that Brexit would result in a loss of £36bn a year, which could leave the NHS with a funding black hole. The impact of a potential Brexit is open to debate and nobody can really forecast how the NHS would fare. As debate rages on, we have collected this data from a number of sources to bring you what’s important about the NHS and the European Union: the facts.
