The Slovak health care system placed 22nd in Europe regarding user access, according to the Euro Health Consumer Index (EHCI).

Slovakia's position improved one spot compared with the previous year’s survey. The index assesses 31 European countries. The Netherlands tops the 2008 ranking, followed by Denmark and Austria. Research director Arne Bjornberg said that Slovakia recorded a certain improvement regarding patients’ rights as well as information and results.
