EU Exit (Brexit) Information

Patient care and safety remain our priority whilst Britain’s exit from the EU (“Brexit”) takes place.

Preparations are under way at SaTH and across the wider NHS to ensure that, where possible, any disruption following Brexit is minimised.

In line with NHS guidance we have a nominated Senior Responsible Officer (SRO) for Brexit, as well as lead representatives from other potentially-affected areas of the Trust. These representatives meet regularly to agree processes and procedures for our own preparations, and to ensure that, after Brexit:

  • There are sufficient supplies of clinical and non-clinical goods, including medicines, to treat patients
  • Staff from EU nations are supported following Brexit
  • The Trust maintains safe staffing levels for its patients


The Government is working closely with the NHS and suppliers to help to ensure medicines and medical products continue to be available for patients.
