Summary report: Cross-border healthcare – European Patients Forum

On 18 March 2015, the European Patients Forum released a summary report on cross-border healthcare providing the main conclusions and recommendations which arose from a series of regional conferences held in 2013-14.

The report highlights persisting barriers in cross-border healthcare and proposes a set of recommendations addressed to the Commission, patients organisations, national contact points and healthcare providers in order to raise awareness and knowledge of patients on their rights as well as to improve their journey in cross border healthcare.
