Pharmacies report drop in customers

Pharmacies said they have noticed a one-third drop in customers since June 1, when a number of payments were introduced into the Slovak health-care system.

The law introduced small fees for various services, including Sk20 for a drug prescription, Sk20 per a doctor visit, and Sk50 for a day in hospital.

The Slovak daily Národná Obroda said several owners of pharmacies confirmed the drop in the number of customers.
