Title of Presentation: ‘A comedy of errors: Brexit means Brexit.’

This talk will offer an up to date assessment of the implications of Brexit for health, in the UK, the rest of Europe, and Gibraltar. Writing this abstract in July 2018, it is impossible to predict what will have happened by the time of the conference, or even tomorrow. It is likely to focus on the four most likely consequences: no money (severe damage to the UK economy); no people (to staff the NHS); large scale government failure (already apparent); and the risk of civil disorder from those who believe they have been betrayed.
