Minister of Health Ivan Uhliarik did not make an agreement with representatives of the providers of emergency services even at their last negotiation. From February, ministry is planning to save on the emergency ambulances annually around € 5 million. According to the providers this will result in old ambulances and cheaper medical equipment. Ministry, allegedly, contrary believes that reduction of payments for ambulances will not affect the patients and the quality of care. President of the Association of Emergency Medical Service claim that some providers will defend through the legal way.
