Brexit Information and Resources


The UK left the European Union on 31st January 2020 with the benefit of a ‘Withdrawal Agreement’. It provided for a ‘transition period’ of 11 months during which, the UK continued to follow EU rules and trade was not affected, giving both sides time to negotiate the future relationship. The transition period ends on 31st December 2020 and the deadline for extending it has now passed.

For people who are unsure about what they need to do, Cancer Support France is able to provide guidance to UK nationals currently resident in France who need to establish their residency and healthcare rights after Brexit. Through the information on this website and our Forum, trained CSF volunteers aim to guide you towards sources of reliable information.

The information provided here is correct at the time of writing, however the user should check for accuracy, particularly as procedures across France differ from one department to another.
