A nauseating portrayal

I’m sure everyone has an opinion on Brexit. Don’t worry – I’m not going to try to persuade you one way or the other. Writing on the eve of the referendum, nothing that I say now will influence the outcome. Like many, I’ve had a bellyful of the posturing, half-truths and evasions on both sides of the argument, but there is one issue that has made me angry: the frankly fatuous claim that if Britain stops sending the mythical £350 million every week to Brussels, the money could go to the NHS.

Onlooker on Brexit

As a result of the Brexit vote, the free movement of pharmacists to the UK from EU countries could eventually come to an end. But presumably this will not mean that they could not come at all. If there is, as promised, an Australian-style points-based system for immigration then some might pass the points barrier. However, if points are related to need they might not be welcome, since the unrestrained schools of pharmacy in the UK are churning out too many pharmacists and the DH wants to reduce pharmacy numbers with its remuneration cuts.
