The EU Right to Healthcare is a principle for the development of EU law. It did not create new rights to health care above and beyond what is already provided under national laws and practices. The UK's commitment to universal healthcare, free at the point of delivery, goes well beyond minimum EU requirements.
The Great Repeal Bill will ensure that there is maximum possible certainty as to the rights and obligations in our law upon leaving the EU. And it will allow for a smooth and orderly exit that provides a secure basis for future changes to our domestic law.
The Bill will ensure that, wherever possible, the same rules and laws apply on the day after we leave the EU as they did before. This means that the Bill will convert directly-applicable EU law into UK law; it will preserve all the laws we have made in the UK to implement our EU obligations, as well as the rights in the EU treaties that can be relied on directly in court by an individual.
