Quality of healthcare in the EU

Question for written answer E-004398-18
to the Commission
Rule 130
Ilhan Kyuchyuk (ALDE)

Each EU Member State has to provide equal access to quality healthcare for every European citizen. Unfortunately, in the individual Member States the reality is rather different and there are severe differences in the quality of medical care. Inequalities in access to healthcare arise most often from the differing quality of medical services — diagnostics, medicines, medical equipment and hospital infrastructure.

1. Does the European Commission have a means of establishing differences in the quality of healthcare in the EU?

2. What measures can the Commission propose for countries with inferior quality healthcare, to help them catch up with Member States with high standards in health services?
