Brexit - Preparing for EU exit
This page will be regularly updated over the next few weeks with updates and new information on the EU exit.
The potential impact on Kent roads
Brexit may affect Kent roads due to high volumes of freight backing up along carriageways while waiting to cross the channel, however Operation Brock is a new system to reduce traffic disruption that has been announced by Gov.uk.
Spencer Private Hospitals has business continuity and contingency plans in place to ensure minimal disruption to our services. We will keep patients updated where possible on issues that may impact upon them and have the following advice:
- Check travel information before your appointment and adjust travel time accordingly.
- Inform us if you’re going to be late or, if you need to change your appointment please give us a minimum of 48 hours’ notice.
- Check this page or our social media platforms for more information as it’s released.
Being owned by East Kent University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust means that supply of medicines should not be an issue as the government has been working with the NHS and suppliers to help ensure patients have access to medicines and medical products in the event of a ‘no deal’ Brexit.
