Saturday, 04. February 2012, 21:39

Providers of emergency care are asking the Prime Minister Iveta Radičová to stop the planned reduction in payments for emergency services, by which the Ministry of Health from February wants to save annually around € 5 million. According to them the reduction in payments will have an impact on the patient, as the equipment of the crews of emergency medical aid will reach the necessary minimum and the new one will not be bought. Representatives of the ambulances also argue that this measure is missing an economical reasoning and logic. At the meeting with Prime Minister they want to submit their requirements, arguments and proposed solutions.
