Could Brexit cause shortages of my medical devices in the Netherlands?
The government does not expect Brexit will lead to shortages of medical devices in the Netherlands. Preparations have been made to prevent this. For instance, manufacturers and care institutions have been urged to make sure the certification of medical devices is in order, so that they can be used in the Netherlands.
What medical devices might be affected?
The medical devices that may be affected include insulin syringes, blood glucose meters, wheelchairs, implants, blood bags and suture thread from the UK.
