How Will Brexit Affect Black Women And How Do We Feel About Leaving The EU? | Black Ballad – So, with that in mind, how has Brexit put the mental health and the health of black women at risk further? The answer begins with the potential cuts to the NHS. Farage has admitted that it was a mistake (we read bold faced lie) to say that the NHS would receive £350m a week from leaving the EU. The move according to Labour, could potentially put a £10.5 billion hole in the NHS. Not to mention that leaving the EU could have a negative impact on our access to funding to health based research and innovation and staff. The National Health Service currently employs 17,000 nurses and health visitors in England that come from other EU countries and 10,000 hospital doctors that come from elsewhere in the EU. So considering that the black community is more likely to suffer from specific health problems and black women are more likely to suffer from mental health problems, it’s extremely difficult not to see how leaving the EU isn’t putting our community’s overall health at risk.
