Officials at Lynn’s Queen Elizabeth Hospital said that they have been reassuring members of its staff following the Brexit vote and any repercussions after it.

There have reportedly been a couple of incidents whereby members of hospital staff have been made to feel uncomfortable as a result of the vote.

QEH chief exectuive Dorothy Hosein said: “It is absolutely appalling, we do not tolerate this behaviour.

“We are telling our staff that we want them to stay and if they need to get a visa in the future, we will help them.”

Chairman Edward Libbey said: “Our European and non-European staff are a central part of the NHS, and they are loved and wanted.

“We as the organisation continue to make people feel welcome and ensure they are not treated any differently.”
