Measures to safeguard patients in Europe

4th February 2013

The NHS European Office has called new measures designed to ensure the safety of patients in Europe a "positive step forward".

MEPs have given their approval to measures which will update the laws on medics who work in different countries in Europe, including ensuring doctors and nurses can speak the language of the country they work in. Elisabetta Zanon, director of the NHS European Office said: "We are pleased with the progress that has been made and will continue to raise awareness of the remaining areas of concern. The NHS needs to ensure the right checks and balances are in place to protect patients from dangerous care from health professionals."
