UK offers help to medical goods suppliers prepare for no-deal Brexit

LONDON, Oct 8 (Reuters) - Britain has set up a new mechanism to help suppliers of medical goods get ready for a no-deal Brexit, documents detailing the government’s planning showed on Tuesday.

“In a further move to get the country ready and to help ensure the UK’s health sector is prepared, the government is today establishing a dedicated ‘Support Unit’ for suppliers of medical goods in the health sector,” the government said in a statement.

“This will help to ensure that companies have the necessary customs paperwork in place for border arrangements ahead of Brexit on 31 October, if we leave without a deal.” (Reporting by William James and Kylie MacLellan, editing by Elizabeth Piper)
