Europacolon strongly believes that all patients have rights, we also believe that patients should know what those rights are and most importantly, that they feel able to enforce those rights.
The Charter of Patients' Rights establishes 14 patients' rights currently at risk in all European countries due to the financial crisis of national welfare systems. These rights are grounded in the European Charter of Fundamental Rights and therefore must be protected at the national as well as the EU level. The Charter was developed by 15 national citizens' organizations.
EuropaColon would like to thank the Active Citizenship Network for their support.www.activecitizenship.net
