Reproduced below is the final two paragraphs of a letter from BMA Council Chair to the Prime Minister dated 16th November 2018:-
“Finally, as doctors, our primary responsibility is to our patients, a role that requires us to be honest and to speak out on matters that concern us. No one who cast their vote in the EU referendum was voting for an impoverished or weakened health service or for a situation in which thousands of highly skilled EU citizens would feel compelled to consider leaving the NHS. It is unlikely that any Brexit deal could ever deliver the kinds and range of benefits which the UK’s current membership of the EU confers on patients, the medical workforce and health services across the UK and Europe.
Now that more is known of the impact that Brexit will have on the UK, and as the Brexit negotiations reach their final, critical stages, the BMA believes it is essential that the Government gives the public the final say on a decision that will determine the country’s future for decades to come.
Dr Chaand Nagpaul CBE”
