The Chief Nursing Officer for England moves to settle any unrest among EU colleagues following the Brexit vote:
The outcome of the referendum on Britain’s membership of the European Union has, understandably, raised a number of questions about what this will mean for people from the EU currently employed in Britain.
I wanted to take this opportunity to confirm to all EU nurses, midwives and care assistants working in England’s health and care system that you are valued and hugely appreciated. You are an integral and vital part of the health and care family, and your skills and compassionate care directly benefit patients, families and communities.
Your vital contribution to our work together will continue; you are appreciated by me and, most of all, by those we care for.
