EU Commission adopts Directive on Recognition of Medical Prescriptions in Cross-border Healthcare

The European Commission recently adopted an Implementing Directive to establish a framework to ensure recognition of medical prescriptions in cross-border healthcare as required by Directive 2011/24/EU on the Application of patients’ rights in cross-border healthcare adopted on 9 March 2011. The purpose of the Implementing Directive is to create measures to facilitate the recognition of medical prescriptions issued in one Member State and dispensed in another. The Implementing Directive is highly relevant to rare disease patients in general, including PID patients, who have been faced with the difficulty to access treatment in a different Member State (ie when travelling). The text of the Implementing Directive is available here.
