The Cross Border Directive.
In 2011, the European Union issued a directive called Cross Border Directive (CBD – 24/2011/EU).

This directive gives European citizens the right to choose to have medial procedures outside their country of residence, in the European country of their choice.

The directive also requires the national health system of the country of residence to pay for the procedure.

European citizen availing of this right must be entitled to their desired procedure on the national health service in their country of residence.

Thinking of using the UK?

Thinking of using the UK’s NHS or a UK private hospital for your procedure?

Consider Brexit.
You can arrange to have your procedure in the UK/NI.
But what happens if the UK Government suddenly decides to crash out of the EU, where might you be then?

The Kings Fund, a leading UK medical charity, recently warned in the event of a crash out Brexit “costs for non UK patients being treated in the UK could transfer to the individual”.
