Leaving EU will hurt not save NHS

by InFacts | 05.06.2016

Boris Johnson and Michael Gove say quitting Europe would save the NHS because we’d get fewer migrants and stop sending money to Brussels.

The opposite is true. If we left, we’d lose full access to Europe’s market. That’s responsible for half our trade.

We’d suffer such an economic shock that we’d have less money to spend, not more.

Boris and Gove also don’t tell you that EU migrants support the NHS. They pay more in taxes than they use public services – partly because they are younger than Brits. What’s more, one in 10 doctors is an EU migrant.

Boris and Gove’s false claim is emblazoned on Vote Leave’s battlebus.
