revised advice on handling requests from patients for treatment in countries of the European Economic Area - guidance for the NHS

The Regulations, along with the accompanying Secretary of State’s Directions and updated guidance provide advice and support on the exercise of those functions by PCTs and should be read in conjunction with the interim guidance that was prepared for the NHS in 2007, following the 2006 Watts judgment given by the European Court of Justice. The Regulations, Directions and Guidance come into force from 1 June 2010.
