European Medical Organisations’ Common Letter to the EU commission and EU Parliament
After the election of the new European Parliament and before the constitution of the new
Commission the undersigned representatives of the European Medical Organisations inform you that
they had a common meeting in Brussels on the 11th of June 2009.
Considering that the current economic and financial crisis will also have negative consequences for the
healthcare sector, the physicians in the European Union, represented by the undersigned associations,
continue to offer their specific expertise to the European decision makers to find patient-orientated
solutions in the healthcare sector.
A committee composed of all Presidents of the European Medical Organisations promotes the
establishment of an alliance of doctors and medical students in Europe.
Each organization will contribute to this unified approach according to their specific expertise
defending the interests of all EU-citizens.
