The immediate panic and political chaos after the Brexit vote seem like something of the distant past.
Yes, there is still a lot of speculation about what the future holds for the UK once we have left the European Union (EU), but you and I both know the future cannot be predicted. At best, all we can be certain of is the uncertainty that lies ahead.
As we prepare ourselves for new horizons and possibilities outside the EU, we also have to be honest about facing some hard-truths that were staring us in the face even before Brexit.
Boom or bust?
One such reality is the state of our health services.
According to a survey held earlier this year before Brexit, Britons were asked to pick the most important national issues facing the country.
The outcome may surprise you: Far more chose health and the economy as a main concern over being a part of the EU.
Clearly, whether we are a part of the EU or not, the state of our health services is something that remains a cause for concern… and now that we are definitely leaving the EU, it seems that there are some dark clouds hanging over the future of the NHS.
And the big question for those of us who care about the NHS is: Will Brexit bring boom or bust to the NHS?
Recently, we asked our readers to participate in a survey to find out what your thoughts are on the future of the NHS after Brexit and the responses and feedback we received was extremely insightful.
As a result, we at The Daily Health will be hosting a webinar that will take place towards the end of August. We will discuss some of the concerns you highlighted about the future of the NHS as well as alternative health.
To make sure that we cover as much as possible, we are inviting you to submit further questions and comments for the webinar. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org using the subject line ‘Brexit Webinar’. We’d love to hear from you.
