On the other hand, during the negotiations of the 2013-2020 EU budget period, particular accent shall be put on EU spendings.

My believe is that if the health care systems in Europe lack the fundamental and necessary investments – let’s be clear: the sufficient budget spendings – there will be neither economic growth nor successfull crisis management with an unhealthy population. The public health disasters will have double negative affects on the budget: the missing workforce will need from the economy (and from the taxpayers’ money) on the one hand, and the hospital and pharmaceutical spendings of the ill population will digest another large part of the health founds, on the other.

To be concluded the appropriate consideration of the real added value of healthcare spendings for the society is very important. Although it won’t have direct economic benefits, more workplaces or economic investments, their positive and indispensable indirect effects can be hardly overestimated.

Further details are in my Blog about this issue.

On what groungs. I say, too much paper work to please the EU with statistics and figures, while the paients are receiving less attention. This morning two Maltese state clinics refused to renew my priscription card at point blank. The nurses has no right to refuse, but as she will have more work, so refused my request. I am not allowed to air my view in public in this country, as I will be cut off from speaking, I take the oportunity to write my comments here.
