UK to be ‘global centre of excellence’ for animal medicines post-Brexit

The National Office for Animal Health (NOAH) has said the UK could become a ‘global centre of excellence’ for animal medicines if the sector’s needs are properly considered during the Brexit talks.

UK to be ‘global centre of excellence’ for animal medicines post-#Brexit

NOAH made the claim in its newly-released election manifesto, which suggests Brexit provides an opportunity for the UK to create a regulatory climate which encourages innovation and allows companies to develop new and improved medicines for health and animal welfare.

 

In order to allow the UK to reach its potential in this area, NOAH is asking future MPs to:

 

  • Make sure the important role of animal medicines is recognised, and the sector’s needs met, in Brexit talks
  • Support incentives to develop innovative treatments and better diagnostics for animals
  • Ensure any future decisions about animal medicines are based on evidence – not misunderstandings

 

Dawn Howard, chief executive of NOAH, said: “Our industry underpins so much which is valued in British society.

 

“As we leave the EU, it is so important that Government ensures what is needed to allow our sector to thrive is included in Brexit negotiations.

 

“All of our animals – whether pets or farm animals – have a right to the most appropriate treatment if they become sick, to reduce their suffering, to protect their health and welfare and to ensure they can continue to provide companionship or produce safe, nutritious food.

 

“This manifesto aims to raise awareness of the issues and encourage support among our future MPs.”
