Health report: review of the balance of competences

This report considers the impact of the EU and the EU role in medicines and medical devices, public health and NHS and patient services.

Responsibility for health policy is a matter for individual member states, but the EU has an important role in various issues related to public health and healthcare. The health report looks at this role and examines the evidence concerning the effect of EU competence in health on the UK’s national interest.

The government is carrying out a review of the balance of competences between the EU and the UK. The review will provide an analysis of what the EU does and how it affects the UK.
