European Medicines Agency

ELF works with the European Medicines Agency (EMA) as an eligible patients and consumers organisation. This means that ELF helps to find patient experts for EMA patient involvement opportunities; for example, to review the information that is included with medications, called a package leaflet, to make sure that it can be understood by patients. ELF is also a member of two EMA topic groups to raise awareness and improve how patients are involved in the work of the EMA. Visit the EMA website for more details on how the EMA works with eligible patient and consumer organisations.
