One of the biggest challenges we face is the urgent need to recreate institutional frameworks (such as new regulatory bodies) for managing regulations across a wide variety of fields, that are currently dealt with through the EU. Otherwise we will reach the A50 date and be unable to answer basic questions about how to get things regulated or certified, and all the legislation freshly copied into UK law will be unworkable since it won't have the mechanisms in place to make it all work.I certainly wouldn't describe myself as being a Leadsom, although maybe a Hannan on a good day.Government is going to be very absorbed with Brexit. Those with individual concerns are probably best advised to head for the tabloids since it will be the best way of securing government attention. And if Brexit really does threaten to be disruptive for medical supplies, that is a tad newsworthy, don't you think? Or are you of the Andrea Leadsom school of patriotism?I was thinking more of those who should be engaging with the process instead complaining about it in public, with headlines like "Brexit Will Give You Cancer" as we saw last week.I agree with that, the politicians and government are indeed doing almost nothing else.Morning all, from sunny Kiev.

The general public will be wondering how the rest of the world's hospitals manage to cope perfectly well outside Euratom.
