Channa has highlighted a real.concern for people with his condition . A life threatening condition . Hard to tell , but I'm assuming you accept this is a legitimate concern caused , potentially , by brexit .
The casual use /abuse of health care in the UK referred to by your cousin has absolutely no relevance to Channa's OP .
Not sure if it's you or your cousin who is inferring that people are blaming this on brexit ? Certainly never heard of anyone else alleging this
The problem for people in this situation is, as channa says, that assurances are vague, it's all very well that those "in the know" say it will be fine. But vulnerable individuals get such mixed messages that it causes worry. I expect that for every expert who says it will be fine, there are as many who say it won't. It is the lack of firm, strategic, definitive measures and reassurance which affects people and encourages stories which may or may not be correct. I feel sorry for anyone in this position, have enough to worry about without any extra.
"Warren says she does not feel reassured by the government statements." Her opinion.
Speaking with my recently retired cousin a couple of week ago, whom has exemplary credentials and ex director of Health Scotland, topic drifted to the B word and reports about lack of drugs, etc. With a reply of (speaking of NHS Scotland) there are contingency plans in place re; drugs. Plus, don't always believe what is read in the press.
Regarding "use/abuse" statement not being relevant, like any professional within health care and government, education is key, whether ciggies, drink, drugs or poor diet, the message is, don't do it, prevention is key, unfortunately not everyone takes this onboard.
Madeleine Warren is now where she is due to an illness at the age of 13, which was no doubt horrendous for her and her family. Most of her comments are if's and but's, nothing concrete, just another doom and gloom statement with no factual basis.
Although not relevant to the lady, "Warren, a former executive at Goldman Sachs."
The same company stated Brexit would not be good for the UK. Their statement had me put another tick in the leave make my mind up box list. A certain breed of person work for GS, in it for the money, that is company policy.

The value of a man should be seen in what he gives and not in what he is able to receive.
You seem not to understand the way tariffs will work. You cannot consider imports without considering exports. There is a tariff wall around the outside of the EU. Currently, we are on the inside. In a no deal Brexit we will be on the outside. That means that any UK firm exporting to the EU will be subject to tariffs that are beyond our control. If we were to not put tariffs on goods coming in we are thus putting our industry at a tremendous disadvantage. Not only do they lose export opportunities, they also lose out in the UK market to cheap imports. That is no way to run an economy. To use your terminology, it would be plain stupid not to impose tariffs on imports if exports are being subject to them. If we followed your suggestion, imports would increase, exports would decrease, jobs would be lost and prices for staple goods would rapidly increase.
You say we are paying billions for Trident so the EU can use it. Rubbish. We are paying that money because of the governments desire to have what it calls an independent deterrent. I totally disagree with the Trident policy but it has absolutely nothing to do with the EU.
The lack of assurances by government is what concerns me, indeed we could well have a situation of worsening as opposed to what we have, I think that's justification for concern
They are offering the same wishy washy assurances to the road haulage industry, a local businessmans take on the situation who makes his living along with 105 other people predominantly within hauling abroad
Within the EU a testimony they are still in business considering lower "lower road tax" fuel etc that the continental s enjoy that's before we consider the Eastern Europeans like Willi Betz et al , lower wages extended fuel tanks etc

As I said already your comment was not relevant to the thread .
Current health professionals in Scotland have publicised the fact they have lost thousands of staff due to brexit . Not an if , but or maybe .
