Via Medscape.com, a June 24 assessment: How the Brexit Decision Might Affect Healthcare. You'd better read the whole article. Excerpt, with my bolding:
Will There Be More Cash for the NHS?
Supporters of Leave originally claimed that quitting the EU would give the UK an additional £350 million a week to spend on health and other public services.
However, an analysis this month by the Institute for Fiscal Studies (IFS) disputed this figure, saying that after taking into account money received back from the EU, the UK's net contribution was £150 million a week.
However, this takes no account of any financial turmoil that could hit government finances.
The IFS analysis predicted that Brexit will add an additional 2 years of austerity to the UK's economy. Carl Emmerson, IFS deputy director and an author of the report, said: "the overwhelming weight of analysis suggests that the economy would shrink by more than enough to offset the positive effect on the public finances of the reduced financial contribution to the EU budget."
Will Containing Immigration Cut NHS Costs?
Immigration and its effect on health and other public services was a key topic during the referendum campaign.
A recent analysis by the Nuffield Trust estimated that in 2014, migration from the EU added £160 million in additional costs for the NHS across the UK.
However, it says this was a relatively small sum when set against the £1.4 billion in additional costs caused by other factors such as treating an ageing population and migrants from outside the EU.
The report also pointed out that immigrants are taxpayers as well as patients and that they could even be making a net contribution to available resources.
I suspect Brexit is the worst public health disaster to hit Europe since H1N1 in 2009-10, and could well cost more lives than that outbreak did. As the implications sink in, I'll post more on the subject; I expect The Lancet will express its opinion in letters of fire and punctuation of brimstone.
