Cross Border Healthcare & Patient Mobility: Public Consultation on Scotland's Transposition and Implementation of Directive 2011/24 EU on the Application of Patients' Rights in Cross-border Healthcare.

This consultation document sets out the Scottish Government’s approach to implementation of the EU Directive on the application of patients’ rights in cross-border healthcare. It seeks views on the detail of the implementation, and examines the effects the Directive may have on Scotland’s health system.

Article 13 - Rare diseases

17.1 Article 13 was a late addition to the Directive to strengthen the message on pan-European co-operation and treatment of rare disease. There are no immediate legislative requirements arising from this article but it does serve as a clear signpost as to the Commission's future interest.
