Nursing After Brexit: Breakfast Briefing

Confirmed to Speak:

  • The Rt. Hon Lord Andrew Lansley, Former Secretary of State for Health
  • Dame Donna Kinnair, Director of Nursing, Policy and Practice, Royal College of Nursing


The NHS faces a potentially severe shortage of nurses. One in three nurses are set to retire in the next 10 years, while recruitment numbers are dwindling. Meanwhile, over 12,000 nurses in the UK are EU nationals - and this number is dropping sharply. With Brexit fast approaching, what are the potential outcomes for nursing following the UK’s exit from the European Union? Most importantly, what can you do to protect your service, your staff and your patients?

Join our Breakfast Briefing on 29 September for an up to date brief on the latest developments for nursing and Brexit. Hear from Dame Donna Kinnair, Director of Nursing at the Royal College of Nursing & The Rt. Hon Lord Andrew Lansley, Former Secretary of State for Health to discuss what the potential fallout might be, and what you can do to future-proof your service.

Key Issues to be Addressed:

  • Where are we now: what is the current state of play for nursing in the UK?
  • Where are we going: what can we expect for the future of nursing after Brexit?
  • How can trusts prepare for potential staffing shortages?
  • What future-proofing can be put in place before the UK leaves?
  • Reassuring staff and patients about the future
  • Does Brexit offer any positive opportunities?

This Brexit Breakfast Briefing is a concentrated event, designed to cover all of the key issues in a convenient half-day format.
