The steady expansion of the European Union's involvement in health over the past 20 years has been accelerated by recent events. This Handbook offers an up-to-date analytical overview of the most important topics in EU health law and policy. It outlines, as far as possible, the direction of travel for each topic and suggests research agendas for the future. Split into five parts, this book brings together international, interdisciplinary contributions to consider the past, present and future of EU health law and policy. The changing membership of the EU could see dramatic changes for EU health law and policy and the contributors consider current developments in the light of past trajectories. The book covers key institutions; policies on people and products; health systems; public health; and the health implications of the EU's external trade policies and laws. Wide-ranging and accessible, this Handbook will appeal to academics and students focussing on EU health law or policy. It will also be of interest to lawyers and policy makers working in or with the EU as well as health managers and NGOs.

A SCHOLASTIC APPROACH TO HEALTH LAW AND POLICY AT A TIME OF CHANGE FOR THE EUROPEAN UNION

Fri, 26 May 2017 | Review by: Phillip T

A SCHOLASTIC APPROACH TO HEALTH LAW AND POLICY AT A TIME OF CHANGE FOR THE EUROPEAN UNION An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers With what the publishers describe as “the steady expansion of the European Union's involvement in health over the past 20 years” which “has been accelerated by recent events” this research material arrives at a most appropriate time for all lawyers and politicians. Professor Martin McKee does not mince his words in his pro-Remain Foreword which we were very gladdened to read for its straightforward statement about the UK, the EU and Brexit. McKee writes that “no-one, following the events of early 2016, can be in any doubt of the need for a book that explains important aspects of EU policy.” We get this in spades from the 32 expert contributors on Health Law for Elgar have surpassed themselves with this new research handbook which makes our lives so much easier by producing such well-constructed legal statements for us as practitioners and academics. And McKee warms to his “Remain” theme, saying that the UK “engaged in a debate on its relationship with Europe that revealed a profound degree of ignorance of all things European”. And that, of course, is partly the problem with the health portfolio as well for the lack of depth of understanding is well balance with this new research material collated so well by the editors, Tamara K Hervey, Calum Alasdair Young and Louise E Bishop. The British people were not served well by the media over Brexit, says McKee. We know that about both Brexit fallacies and Health Law inaccuracies! McKee does not stop there, however. The UK media newspapers “continued to pour out hatred aimed at anyone foreign, oblivious to the fact that most were owned by fantastically rich individuals whose commitment to the UK did not extend to living there or paying taxes in it”. And, he says, “the BBC were little better”. Do read the rest of the Foreword, especially if you are a Brexiteer… even though the decision has been made! A final point from McKee deals with the research here- “its importance within Europe is obvious” … yes… but “not just for academics but also for those working on policy in areas such as health care, research and pharmaceuticals” which is the real value of this work. It’s excellent research in Elgar’s “European Law” series which gives the legal scholar a contemporary “analytical overview of the most important topics in European Union health law and policy” and we feel it has a much wider readership as well because of the vast area of coverage of Health Law. The book points us in the right “direction of travel” for every topic covered. Contributors offer important research agendas for the future, Brexit or not. The title is divided into 5 parts, bringing together international, interdisciplinary contributions to consider the past, present and future of EU health law and policy so there is something for everyone. And, of course, the changing membership of the EU could result in dramatic changes for EU health law and policy. The contributors consider “current developments in the light of past trajectories” and they cover the following: key institutions; policies on people and products; health systems; public health; and the health implications of the EU's external trade policies and laws. It’s wide-ranging and accessible, so this Handbook will appeal to academics and students alike focusing on EU health law or policy. It will also be of interest to lawyers and policy makers working in or with the EU as well as health managers and NGOs. And as McKee says, it “will undoubtedly be read by those who understand the importance of the EU’s contribution to health policy” and “spread the message more widely”. We do hope so, “but the scale of the challenge must not be underestimated”. The law has been stated as at 2017 and it is available as a book, online and as an ebook.
