Responding to reports that Brexit has caused significant numbers of nurses and midwives from Europe to quit the NHS last year Liberal Democrat Brexit Spokesperson, Tom Brake said:
“These figures are deeply concerning. Our health service has been built and is maintained by the hard work of people from not just the UK but around the world. It is terrible that this Tory Brexit is making some people feel less welcome here.
“Many Brexit voters supported leaving the EU on the promise of more money for the health service. There cannot be a stronger reason for the public to have a final say on the deal, than the fact we can now see the harm Brexit does to our NHS.”
