Specialist doctors warn against proposal

THE HEAD of the Slovak Medical Union of Specialists, Andrej Jančo, has criticised a Health Ministry proposal that would only let patients visit a specialist on the recommendation of their general practitioner.

Jančo said the measure might curb the accessibility and quality of health services, Hospodárske Noviny wrote on August 16.

He is also concerned that the changes might lead to more hassles for patients going through their practitioners and more corruption in the sector, he said.
