Brexit ‘may be bad for our health’

Irish Daily Mirror - - SQUARE EYES -

BREXIT could have “se­ri­ous im­pli­ca­tions” on Ire­land’s strug­gling health work­force.

Jim Camp­bell from the World Health Or­gan­i­sa­tion said he was con­cerned the UK may try to fill gaps by at­tract­ing nurses and medics from Ire­land.

He added: “Irish health work­ers could sud­denly be ap­proached un­der that tra­di­tional Uk-ire­land agree­ment.

“A gap in one coun­try be­comes an op­por­tu­nity for oth­ers so I would be par­tic­u­larly con­cerned the long-term im­pact of Brexit could have se­ri­ous im­pli­ca­tions for the Irish health work­force.”
