Call on the European Union and the UK to prioritise patients as the Article 50 decision approaches

07 December, 2017 in FENS News

FENS joins the European health community to call on the European Union and the UK to prioritise patients as the Article 50 decision approaches.

Today a group of organisations representing patients, healthcare professionals and the healthcare industry have called on the European Union and the UK to prioritise patients in the Brexit negotiations through a policy statement that outlines five priorities.

The statement will coincide with a meeting of EU Health Ministers in Brussels and aims to bring attention to this topic, just one week ahead of the European Council meeting where negotiators will decide if the Article 50 negotiations can move beyond ‘phase 1’.

In July 2016, FENS’ leadership already expressed their concern regarding the critical situation and the future of European and UK neuroscience.
