European coordination of patients’ associations and other stakeholders

European coordination of patients’ associations and other stakeholders on: Directive 2011/24/EU Patients’ rights in cross-border healthcare. Join us!

As many of the provisions of the Directive are optional or leave room for interpretation by the Member States, much depends on the way the Directive is implemented. In order to make sure that the Directive is implemented so as to be an added value for patients, it is essential that patients’ organisations at national level be actively involved!

For these reasons, a number of associations from ACN's network from different European countries and other stakeholders (such as the European Union of Private Hospitals - UEHP and Pain Alliance Europe) deemed of paramount importance to work together in order to be involved by their national institutions and to actively monitor the processes of adopting  and implementing the Directive using as a common tool for lobbying the "Manifesto for the implementation of the Right of European patients to make an informed choice".
