Former Commissioner Byrne's statement to HFE's members:
I am pleased and honoured to become a Patron of Health First Europe. The formation of this new health organisation, Health First Europe, with the main aim of promoting access for patients to effective modern and affordable healthcare is well timed.
The combined impacts of enlargement, demographics and medical innovation require policy developments and legal solutions to ensure that patients' access to health is promoted and protected.The skills and experience of the combined membership of HFE together with its vision can lead to the achievement of these aims.
I am grateful for the opportunity to assist this important work.
