Commissioners and providers of social care: Brexit planning update

Letters to commissioners and providers of adult social care giving an update on actions to consider in the period leading up to March 2019.



The letters ask the adult social care system to ensure business continuity plans are in place so local areas are able to manage the possible implications of EU Exit.

They include plans relating to:

  • medicines and consumables
  • non-clinical consumables
  • goods and services
  • the adult social care workforce

The letters were published alongside the Brexit operational readiness guidance for the health and social care system with a covering letter from Sir Chris Wormald.
