[Correspondence] A Brexit miscalculation

I read with concern Nick Fahy and colleagues’ Health Policy (Nov 4, p 2110)1 about how Brexit might affect health and health-care services in the UK. I argue that their Health Policy has a logical flaw and a potential miscalculation (appendix). Fahy and colleagues’ key anti-Brexit argument is that EU membership, protective legalities from the Court of Justice of the EU (CJEU), and free movement, tax, and childcare rights are essential to attract and retain much of the UK’s National Health Service (NHS) workforce.
