The free movement of persons is one of the four fundamental freedoms recognized and regulated at the European Union level. The definition and implementation of all existing policies and actions at European level, regardless of the scope, have as their focal point a high level of health protection. Under the conditions of the extension of the right to healthcare of the persons, at the level of the European Union, it is intended to ensure the access of every person to healthcare based on the latest scientific discoveries. The adoption in 2011 of Directive No. 24 is an important step in respecting patients' rights in cross-border healthcare, with important consequences both for the health of patients and for the health systems in the Member States.
