The  roundtable “High Quality Healthcare in Europe,” organized jointly by the Council of European Dentists (CED) and the Standing Committee of European Doctors (CPME) today in Brussels, provided one of the first opportunities for  stakeholders to discuss the Commission’s  recent  proposal for  a Directive on Patients’ Rights in Cross-Border Healthcare. The event under the patronage of Othmar Karas, MEP, brought  together  Commission officials and MEPs to  exchange views with the main organisations of European health professionals and patients on the proposed Directive, as well as on the wider institutional and political framework for cross-border healthcare in Europe.
