Oral Questions & Impact of a no-deal Brexit on the health and social care sector

Oral Questions & Impact of a no-deal Brexit on the health and social care sector

22nd October 2018

Tomorrow will be a day with hopefully many answers but certainly many questions.

Health and Social Care Secretary of State, Matt Hancock will first answer Oral Questions in the Common's at 11.30 am and will in the afternoon give evidence to the Health and Social Care Committee on the impact of a no-deal Brexit on the health and social care sector. 

You can watch the Oral Questions (incl Topical Questions) via this link and the Committee meeting live via this link.

Brexit and its potential impact on the medicine supplies and industry investments was also a topic of debate during last week's PMQs. For those who missed it, read Jeremy Corbyn's questions to PM May here

Also, all of you are invited to give feedback and  share your thoughts on the Health and Social Care Departments' technology vision policy paper through a questionnaire here. If you need some inspiration, Matt Hancock commented that: 

'The tech revolution is coming to the NHS. These robust standards will ensure that every part of the NHS can use the best technology to improve patient safety, reduce delays and speed up appointments.' 

Finally, I'd like to draw your attention to a speech Matt Hancock gave at the Global Dyslexia Summit. Sharing his personal story and delivering a strong message calling to end stigma around dyslexia, encourage early assessment and making the case how the world needs more people to think like dyslexics do, Matt is 'proud to be dyslexic'.

Have a great week,

Best regards,
