Health Services, regulation and legislation are a national matter however the health of citizens is an important topic on a European level. Health as an industry is an important economic pillar however the health of citizens is essential for a well functioning society. MEP Dr Alfred Sant expressed his wish to continue the positive communication which he already had with MHN throughout his new mandate. Dr Sant had actively contributed to the SIP Symposium 2017 held in Malta under the Maltese Presidency of the EU and welcomed with interest the invitation extended by MHN on behalf of SIP Platform Europe and SIP Malta to participate in the SIP Symposium 2019 meeting in Brussels in November. Dr Sant was presented with the various initiatives MHN has been involved in including raising awareness on Patients’ Rights, The Cross-Border Directive for Health Care, Campaigns to raise awareness on Patient Safety, Chronic Pain, Vaccination and Patient Solidarity Day among others.
Meeting was hosted at The Meeting Place, Marsa.
