Awareness facing uncertainty
A new European Parliament is elected! As representatives of the civil society in Brussels, we are really looking forward to working with the new MEPs representing the democracy in EU. The “day after” we remain vigilant to observe the new orientation in a complex world, with threats coming from outside and important changes which could occur in the European space itself. The future of Brexit is still uncertain, the roles of political groups we solicited before the elections will be cleared by facts, decisions and votes in the new Parliament. We will follow with major attention the nomination of new Commissioners and the end of the process of Spitzenkanditat designation. And with the end of bipartism, we will see how a balance between policy makers will be created in order to find the right way for the future of Europe.
The future of social protection depends on efficiency, reducing unnecessary costs and limiting waste, as well as on increasing the global performance of the system. The private sector is clearly a positive way to respect strategic investments in health and to offer a modern perspective breaking the borders in a global perspective. We are engaged to orient the debate on the quality of services delivered to European citizens together with all European partners, including patients associations. We represent the private hospitals’ sector and we will be partner, in this fragile new world, of all positive initiatives dedicated to modern services.
