ALDE Campaign for EU Patient RightsComments Off on ALDE Campaign for EU Patient Rights

The Alliance of Liberals and Democrats (ALDE) is a political group in the European Parliament (EP) which brings together MEPs from Liberal Democrat and Centre Parties across the European Union. It is the third largest political group in the European Parliament.

ALDE launched an e-petition for EU Patients rights in the following terms:

“You are sick and need to choose the fastest and safest medical treatment.
You have the right to benefit from the best medical treatment regardless of state borders. Demand the European Commissioner for Health to assure that this right is guaranteed through future EU legislation! Sign the ALDE initiated e-petition.”

ALDE also co-hosted with PSE in EP the “European Patients’ Rights Day” conference on 29 March 2007 (see CPME News 04/03/07)
