    Default Britain loses medicines contracts as EU body anticipates Brexit

    Britain’s leading role in evaluating new medicines for sale to patients across the EU has collapsed with no more work coming from Europe because of Brexit, it has emerged.

    The decision by the European Medicines Agency to cut Britain out of its contracts seven months ahead of Brexit is a devastating blow to British pharmaceutical companies already reeling from the loss of the EMA’s HQ in London and with it 900 jobs.

    All drugs sold in Europe have to go through a lengthy EMA authorisation process before use by health services, and the Medicines & Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) in Britain has built up a leading role in this work, with 20-30% of all assessments in the EU.

    And all new medicines dispensed in the U.K.will need approval by MHRA, so only a minor disaster, surely?

    Its just a jobs. Let them go, and we can boycott all EU drugs then. Life was easier before the EU, and it can be easier again when we don't have jobs to worry about. It'll be worth it.
