Brexit and child health

A new UK-EU trade and cooperation deal was agreed on 24 December 2020. Take a look at what this means for child health and our members.

Summary of agreements

During the transition period, RCPCH called on Government to put children and young people’s best interest at the centre of its negotiations with the European Union. We have summarised and reviewed the agreements made in the UK-EU deal that will impact on child health and our members.

We also have specific considerations for Northern Ireland, and there are some areas where further analysis is required before the impact of the agreement becomes clear.
