The EU Home Affairs Sub-Committee takes evidence on reciprocal healthcare after Brexit. The evidence session will cover the implications of Brexit for Northern Ireland’s cross-border healthcare arrangements.

- Mr Damien McCallion, Director General, Co-operation and Working Together
- Ms Bernie McCrory, Chief Officer, Cross-Border Health and Social Care, Co-operation and Working Together
- Dr Anthony Soares, Deputy Director, Centre for Cross Border Studies
- In what ways do EU reciprocal healthcare arrangements underpin cross-border healthcare provision? Do you know how many people in Northern Ireland access healthcare in the Republic of Ireland using the EHIC scheme, and vice versa? Do you have a sense of how many call on S1, S2, or the Patients Rights' Directive?
- What will be the impact of Brexit on healthcare provision in the border regions?
- Should reciprocal healthcare arrangements not continue in their current form post- Brexit, which aspects of the arrangements between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland would be most important to keep?
