Lack of workforce

“The Mental Health Network, which represents mental health and learning disability service providers in England, said that one in 10 posts in specialist mental health services was currently vacant” (Rimmer, Abi). Difficulty in hiring trained people to work in this area tends to increase as Brexit will prevent the sector to easily hire people from EU due to the complexity of immigration processes.

Pestel – Brexit





Fund Cutting

Real threat in loosing access to EU funds. Withdrawal of funding for programmes and research development may happen. There are many programmes, schools, jobs and research teams based in the UK that are in fact funded by EU funds. For example, the ESF funds six employment programmes for people with disabilities across the UK. The main concern is where will these funds come from as the government did not yet commit to continue funding these programmes after 2020.  ( Alfonso Montero); (August 14,2017)

     Change in disability rights protection

In the last years EU, influenced the legislation to protect those with disabilities. With the Uk leaving the European Union, the sector is now facing a change in the current laws, resulting of limited rights which are now safeguarded by the European Court of Justice. There is a real possibility that Uk citizens will not be able to appeal to the European court in case of injustice (Montero, A).  ( Alfonso Montero); (August 14,2017)

Staff recruitment

The free movement of people within the EU will have a great impact in the NHS workforce. Approximately 200 thousand professionals which represent 5% of the total workers employed by the NHS.

The immigration system will become more restrictive in the EU making harder to recruit staff from the different EU states.

“The Mental Health Network, which represents mental health and learning disability service providers in England, said that one in 10 posts in specialist mental health services was currently vacant. “ (Rimmer,A).

This sector is currently suffering due to the lack of specialists and tends to get worse by the new immigration restrictions within the EU.



2Development issues

There are many active programmes in the UK that are funded by the EU such as horizon 2020, The innovative Medicines Initiative (IMI), EU Health Programme 2014-2020, European Structural and Investment Funds and Ad hoc EU funding calls. One of the main threats that we will face after Brexit is that we cannot be sure if we will still be granted access to these programmes as well as its funds. The free movement of goods will also affect the NHS as it currently imports many vital drugs from other countries within the EU, it will become much|

more expensive, harder to access and might take longer to receive.   X 
3Legal aspects

NHS employees with disabilities may no longer be protected by the laws implemented by the EU and will not have access to the same court which has ruled in favour of the famous case of UK carer Sharon Coleman.

“and the UK would not automatically benefit from future developments” (prof. Lawson) improvements are made daily by the EU to provide equality and security for all citizens including the ones with special needs such as people with disabilities. Not being able to access new laws automatically might delay or even stop these people to receive the same fair treatment as people living in other countries in the EU.
