I welcome Simon Stevens’ intervention

19 Jul 2016
Diane Abbott MP, Shadow Secretary of State for Health, speaking in response to calls from Simon Stevens, CEO of the NHS, that NHS staff from overseas must be assured their jobs will be protected after Brexit, said:
“I welcome Simon Stevens’ intervention. The NHS and the social care sectors are just two of the key parts of our economy which are dependent on the skills and dedication of workers from overseas. Our NHS would struggle to cope without them and patients would be put at risk.“
NHS staff and all overseas workers here should be given assurances that they have the right to work and stay here as long as they wish.”
