In 2017 the UK started to negotiate on leaving the EU. It is not yet clear when the negotiations will be finished but it is clear that the UK will leave the EU on 29 March 2019 at the latest, with or without a deal. At the time the conference takes place, the negotiations are scheduled to be over and the Member States should be in the process of ratifying the withdrawal agreement...if there is one. Is the health industry ready for that moment?
