DHSC publishes no-deal planning guidance for care providers

Updated information on what adult social care providers and local authorities need to do to prepare for a no-deal Brexit has been published.

The Department for Health and Social Care guidance sets out what actions need to be taken before and after Brexit, to plan for and help manage any potential service disruption to services if the UK leaves the EU without a deal on 31 October.

The document covers supply of medicines, medical devices and clinical consumables, business continuity plans, workforce and data sharing, among other areas.
