The healthcare systems operating in the various member states of the European Union differ from one another quite significantly. However, all are under pressure from a number of pan-European developments and all are implementing reforms designed to ensure that their healthcare systems are able to cope with these developments. In view of this situation and the general trend towards European integration, it is reasonable to assume that the EU member states’ healthcare systems will gradually become more and more alike.
This is part of the 2004 Dutch Health Council report “European primary care” including this bold recommendation:
“To create, with the support of the European Commission, an international forum for primary care development throughout Europe.”
This was one of the reasons why the EFPC was grounded. Now we have set up a poll to ask you if those recommendations have been fulfilled. We would appreciate if you can fill it out and share your opinion regarding the achievements of the EFPC.
