Abstract: Health spending in Romania is the lowest in the EU, both per capita and as a percentage of GDP, and lack of financial resources and demographic challenges endanger the sustainability of the health system. Because a key factor of patient satisfaction is the responsiveness of the national healthcare system and the strategic changes’ implementation, this article aims to analyse how the standard of protection created at the level of the European Union by means of the Directive on cross-border healthcare is implemented and complied with in national legislation. A modern healthcare system must be centred on patient needs, to have dynamic and integrated structures, adaptable to the various and changing healthcare needs of society in general and of individuals in particular. For these reasons, by presenting the Petru case, the article examines the degree of harmonization of national policies in view of reforming the national health system, contributing to social cohesion and social justice, as well as to eliminate any restrictions to the fundamental freedoms of European citizens.
