Description

The first of three videos on a series of events which examined the relationship between the EU and the UK’s public services, within a discussion about the impact on wider society.

From the NHS and local service providers, to policing and our higher education system, what benefits and drawbacks does our EU membership have in relation to the services we use in our everyday lives?
How are our healthcare systems affected by our relationship with the EU? What is the impact on both patients and practitioners? How are our lifestyles – what we eat, what we drink and how we work – and wider wellbeing influenced at an EU level? And how are healthcare services affected by the workforce and research exchanges made possible through EU membership?
