No-deal Brexit 'still risk to NHS and care sector', report warns

The National Audit Office has published a report saying a no-deal Brexit presents risks to the NHS and care homes despite extensive Government planning.

The watchdog praised ministers for the "enormous amount of work" that had been done but said there were still "significant" gaps.

The extra shipping capacity Government is buying to bring medicines into ports other than Dover may not be completely ready by 31 October and there was no clear evidence the care sector was ready, the NAO said.
