LETTER: Brexit - Is this what you voted for?

Last April you were kind enough to publish my letter about my concerns for the future of NHS nursing due to our Government’s lack of commitment to ensuring the rights of EU citizens living in the UK after Brexit has taken place.

Our Government’s inaction and ineptitude on this subject would, I believe, lead to EU citizens in the NHS not wishing to remain in the UK, therefore causing a staffing crisis.

A survey carried out this week has shown that there has been a 90 per cent drop in the number of EU citizens wishing to come to the UK as nurses. This same survey showed that 70 per cent of EU nurses currently in the UK have stated that they have no desire to remain hare after Brexit.

So the disaster that is Brexit will have severe consequences for our NHS. Is this what you voted for, all you Brexiteers?

I would really like to know.
