Parliamentary questions
9 February 2016
E-001183-16
Question for written answer
to the Commission
Rule 130
Matt Carthy (GUE/NGL)

 Subject:  Directive 2011/24/EU — greater cooperation
 Answer(s) 

The Commission report on the operation of Directive 2011/24/EU on the application of patients' rights in cross-border healthcare of September 2015 highlighted a number of issues regarding the transposition of this directive.

The report outlines the following: ‘The directive requires the Commission to encourage Member States to cooperate in cross-border healthcare provision in border regions. Initial work by the Commission shows that there is a limited number of existing cross-border projects which may provide valuable “lessons learned” for future parties’.

— Can the Commission outline whether it has identified regions for greater cooperation? — Would the Commission consider promoting a pilot project using the two health systems on the island of Ireland to highlight the value of this directive?
