Welcome to the European Care Across Borders Project
The European Care Across Borders Project was funded by the European Community and ran from May 2010 to October 2013. Its formal title was the European Union Cross Border Care Collaboration.
The aim of the project was to assist in delivering the following:
- A patient in one Member State can make an informed choice about whether to seek health care in another Member States
- If they choose to do so, the process of obtaining care should be straightforward
- Where they obtain only one phase of a larger episode of care abroad, they can be assured that they will experience continuity of care
The project was a collaboration between 13 partner institutions across 11 EU Member States. The full list of partners can be seen here.
An overview of the project and its results can be found in the Project Summary.
A discussion of the main findings of the project is featured in the film Cross-border Care in Europe, which can be accessed here.
