New government urged to focus on NHS needs

9th June 2017

Healthcare sector organisations have called on the government to ensure the needs of the NHS are addressed now that the general election is over.

Prime minister Theresa May is working to establish a new government following the June 8th vote, which defied expectations by wiping out her overall majority, resulting in a pact with Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party.

Mrs May said the focus of the new administration will need to be upon the beginning of Brexit negotiations on June 19th, but the British Medical Association (BMA) and Royal College of Nursing (RCN) have underlined the importance of the NHS remaining on the agenda.

The BMA said the new administration needs to work to ensure long-term stability for the NHS by granting permanent residence to EU doctors working in the UK, maintain current working time regulations and ensure Brexit does not cut the country off from the wider research community.

It was also observed that the health service is in urgent need of additional funding, regardless of Brexit – a point emphasised by the RCN, which said this is essential to tackle the current staff shortfall within NHS hospitals.

RCN chief executive Janet Davies said: “No matter which government is formed, it has more than Brexit to resolve in the months and years to come."
