EU Treatment Guide

Complete the form below to download the guide.


In March this year, the European Parliament adopted the “European Directive on the application of patients’ rights in cross-border healthcare”. This EU legislation clarifies the rights of EU citizens to seek treatment in other EU member states and may encourage more patients to consider travelling for treatment in another European country.

At Treatment Abroad, we have developed the first guide to patients’ rights to treatment in the European Union. The first edition of this guide is aimed at UK patients. It will help patients to understand:

  • What their rights are under the new Directive.

  • How they can go about exercising those rights.

  • Where they can go for advice and guidance


The guide has been produced by the editorial team at Treatment Abroad (www.treatmentabroad.com), the leading online guide to medical travel, run by Intuition Communication Ltd. In preparing the guide, we have consulted throughout with the EU & International Cross Border Health & Competition Policy Team at the UK Department of Health. Their help in editing and reviewing this guide is greatly appreciated.
