â€œIn theory, the hospital form Ruse could handle the treatment of Romanian patients from Giurgiu. The problem is that the two healthcare systems canâ€™t collaborateâ€ said Dr. Kiril Panayotov. According to him there are no technical obstacles regarding patient transport over the border:
The main problem regarding patient care across the borders and involving healthcare systems from different countries members of the European Union appears for the first time in the areas with the most patient transfers â€“ areas such as Belgium, Holland, Luxembourg and Germany. These are the first countries to insist for measures regarding coverage of the healthcare systems. This problem was first raised in the European Parliament in 2009, but the Council was against such a measure, and the problem will be brought in front of the European Parliament once again at the beginning of 2012.
