On 24 November 2010, the European Parliament in plenary session voted on the European Commission proposition that aims to allow Information to Patients.

“Patients must have better access to high-quality information on prescription medicines in the future” said Members of the European Parliament. This means providing objective information on a drug’s characteristics and the treated disease or condition, while preventing unsolicited information or disguised information.

Christofer Fjellner (EPP, SE), who drafted the reports for Parliament, said, “The most important thing we did during this process was to change the focus of the whole legislation from the rights of pharmaceutical companies to spread information to patients’ right to get the information they need and want. This proposal offers only improvements when it comes to the quality and amount of information available to patients.”
