European Parliament to debate the impact on healthcare in the EU after Brexit

On February 27, the European Parliament will host an early event – 8h00 until 9h30 – to discuss the impact of Brexit on healthcare services across the European Union.

Securing continuing cooperation and mutual recognition between the EU and UK regarding the authorisation, conformity assessments, testing and surveillance of medicines and medical technologies should be a priority outcome of the negotiations.

The event at the European Parliament will  be hosted by S&D MEPs Julie Ward and Karine Gloanec Maurin – Co-President to the European Parliament Intergroup on Common Goods & Public Services – and is entitled “Brexit: The impact on the EU27’s Healthcare Services”.

If you wish to attend the debate and keep abreast of the current points at issue, contact julie.ward@europarl.europa.eu before February 19. For accreditation, you must provide your surname, first name, date of birth, nationality, passport and/or ID number. The event will be interpreted in both English and French.
