People from the EU who work in the health and social care sectors in Wales make a huge contribution to our communities and are extremely valued members of staff.

This was the message from Vaughan Gething, Cabinet Secretary for Health, Wellbeing and Sport and Rebecca Evans, Minister for Social Services and Public Health, issued in July 2016 following the UK’s decision in June 2016 to leave the European Union.

People from the EU play a key role in the operation of our health services, with data showing around 6% of doctors in Wales were trained in another EU country.
