EPF will continue to monitor the implementation of the Cross-Border Healthcare Directive with mini-workshops organised in eight countries not covered by the four regional conferences held in 2013-2014. Next stop: Dublin, Ireland.


This mini-workshop will help to raise awareness to the British and Irish Patient' representatives about the Cross-Border Healthcare (CBHC) Directive and patients’ rights enshrined within this legislation. We will ensure to ‘unpack’ various aspects of the Directive which have wider policy and systems implications of interest to patients (eHealth provision, HTA provision, general provisions on Quality of Care and Patient Safety, specific provisions linked to Rare Diseases, etc).

Attendees will acquire greater understanding regarding the role on National Contact Points in their respective country and how patient groups could support their effectiveness. They will create an informal network of patient leaders interested in CBHC to monitor developments over the coming years.

Who can attend?

Patient leaders from Ireland and United Kingdom with the capacity to transfer learning from the conference to peers within their organisation and networks (board representatives, directors and communication specialists within the organisations).
