Mark Dayan, policy analyst at the Nuffield Trust, said "a large degree of chaos" was "implicit" in a no-deal Brexit
No sh~t, Sherlock!The group representing hospitals and ambulance services in England has warned of a lack of "contingency planning" to deal with the impact of a no-deal Brexit on the health service.
In a leaked email to NHS England boss Simon Stevens, NHS Providers says leaving the EU without agreement would immediately be a real risk to services.
The group warns it would make it harder to stop the spread of diseases.
NHS England said preparing for every possible Brexit outcome was a priority.
The Department of Health said it was confident of reaching a Brexit deal that benefits the NHS but was preparing for "the unlikely event of no-deal", to prevent disruption to patients.

Why on earth would the existing staff leave their jobs after Brexit. A lot of non-UK staff have moved to the UK to work as the pay and conditions are better than their own country.
It has been made quite clear already that their status will be the same as it is today.
The NHS will be free to recruit international staff from a global talent pool.
This can only be a positive thing.
When we've got a points based system for recruitment (like Australia) we'll be able to pick and choose the best candidates for the job.

Blah Blah Bluster Project Fear.
It's not. The fact is (and it is a fact no matter how much certain people want to put their head in the stand) there is a recruitment crisis in the NHS.
It's not only the fact that nurses (and doctors) are going home/not coming; this government removed the nurses bursary and that had a massive negative impact on nurse recruitment.
Add to that the pathetic take up of their 'working apprenticeships' and it's all heading south, but that's nothing new to Conservative NHS dogma is it?
Maybe the swivel eyed deniers of reality can pull something out of their magic unicorn pen before it hits the buffers though.
They'll be at the back of a very long queue.

First Brexit itself was the disaster. Now 'leaving without an agreement' will be the disaster. Thecampaign to reverse the result continues. Perhaps the EU should set about negotiating rather than trying to find ways of punishing us for having the nerve to vote to leave. As we know, Macron said if the French were given the choice - which they won't be - they'd probably vote to leave too.

Unfortunately the use of the phrase 'Project fear' is another deceiving trick utilised by extreme Conservative 'hard' Brexit MPs such as Rees Mogg, Liam Fox, Michael Gove, Boris Johnson etc. It immediately dismisses and trivialises any statements from impartial informed observers, such as in this case NHS providers and the Nuffield Trust. It shows no respect for well earned balanced expertise and knowledge, and deftly lets the 'project fear' raiser off the hook from having to deliver a sentient argued reply; it is a crass vulgar trick that seeks to politicise and instantly shut down any proper debate. It shows how little these grandees respect ordinary people's ability to form opinion and make judgement. I write as someone who voted leave, but not as someone who shouts slogans and deceives with false facts and the shutting down of debate. Neither am I someone who wants Britain to become a low cost tax haven in order to benefit the 'filthy' rich.

I must say i do enjoy the fact that pointing out that the highly principled bankers and friends of the people Goldman Sachs urged us to vote Remain in 2016 does seem to have struck a nerve here. Far be it from me to add that they were accompanied by the austerity kings Cameron and Osborne, those other well known friends of the people.

Youíll understand, then, that the news that Brexit could mean a UK shortage of nearly 400,000 care workers by 2026 if we leave the EU without a deal on free movement has personal resonance for me. Perhaps it does for you, too: perhaps you have an elderly parent, a disabled relative, or a child who has been released from hospital, and you canít manage on your own. So an industry reliant on the free movement of EU labour steps in, an industry already suffering from a shortage of 90,000 staff Ė a vacancy rate of 6.6 per cent Ė as a result of years of austerity.

@ Clifford. If the French have been wrongly convinced that all their problems are caused by Brussels then yes, they may well vote to leave. As we're finding out here though it's not all sunshine and rainbows in Brexit Land.
Instead we are reinforcing motorway shoulders to serve as truck parks, stockpiling medicines and we've gone from 'Brexit will be a boon for business and trade
' to '#@£% business'. If you can't swap a bait and switch by uncaring people who will be fine as they are very rich then you're clearly not paying attention.
