Amendment to Brexit Bill tabledType: News
Topic: Policy and legislation

Camphill Scotland is delighted that Joanna Cherry MP has tabled an amendment to the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill on behalf of Camphill Scotland. The amendment would require the UK Government to make arrangements for an independent evaluation of the impact of the Act upon the health and social care sector to be made after consulting the Scottish Ministers, the Welsh Ministers and the relevant Northern Ireland department, service providers, those requiring health and social care services, and others.
Camphill Scotland believes this amendment is necessary to determine the full impact of the legislation upon the health and social care sector. This, in turn, will help to ensure that the strategic planning and decision making of Governments, local authorities, third sector organisations and other key agencies across the UK, in relation to the impact of Brexit on the health and social care sector in their respective nations, is fully informed and shaped by robust evidence.
