We send £350 million a week to the EU – enough to build a new hospital a week
250,000 EU migrants a year come to the UK – it’s out of control and damages the NHS
It’s safer to take back control and spend our money on our priorities
Imagine if we Vote Leave in 60 days’ time… We can help protect patients by ensuring that we can check the qualifications of doctors coming from the EU.

Vote Leave to save our NHS
Today we launched our latest campaign advert which warns of the dangers to the NHS of voting to stay in the EU. We send £350 million to the EU every week, money which would be much better spent on our priorities like the NHS.
Our public services are already under huge pressure from uncontrolled migration. As Michael Gove wrote in the Times today, this will only get worse as countries such as Turkey, Macedonia and Albania join the EU. The Justice Secretary states that ‘we cannot guarantee the same access people currently enjoy to healthcare and housing if these trends continue’.
The only way to take back control of our borders and ease the pressure on our NHS and public services is to Vote Leave on 23 June.
Theresa May admits we can’t control migration whilst inside EU
The Home Secretary Theresa May said yesterday that free movement within the EU makes it harder to control immigration. She admitted that EU membership makes this impossible and that David Cameron has failed to bring any powers back from the EU to change that.
More than a quarter of a million people came to the UK from the EU over the last twelve months – a city the size of Newcastle – which adds to the pressures on our NHS and other public services. After we Vote Leave we can create a fairer immigration policy which welcomes in the brightest and best from around the world, whilst easing the strain on our public services. Let’s take back control on 23 June.
UK in a strong position to strike a US trade deal
President Obama rounded off his trip to back the David Cameron’s IN campaign by warning that any UK/US trade deal could take up to a decade to complete. However, the evidence suggests otherwise.
The US signed major free trade agreements with Canada and Australia in under 2 years. Conversely, we have been a member of the EU for over 40 years yet Brussels has failed to strike a deal with the US. Further, the US has signed bilateral agreements with 20 countries – all with smaller economies than the UK’s – which contradicts Obama’s claim that they are only looking to deal with trading blocs.
The UK is a major export market for the US, with nearly $120 billion of American goods and services entering the UK market. As the fifth largest economy in the world, we are in a strong position to negotiate a deal to benefit both UK and US businesses after we Vote Leave on 23 June.
