Formally, the European Union has relatively little role in health and health care.
This paper offers a guide to those responsible for developing and implementing health policy within member states of the European Union.
It first describes the legislative framework of the Union, the formal position of health and health care in European law, and the concept of subsidiarity.
It continues by examining a series of areas in which provisions related to the « four freedoms » of movement of goods, services persons and capital have implications for health and health care, such as free movementy of professionals, of patients, of health care providers, and of pharmaceuticals.
It concludes by considering when a member state can block free movement and how health can get on the policy agenda.
