New health fees mean fewer patients

THE NUMBER of prescriptions has dropped by 30 percent since fees for health services were introduced at the beginning of July, according to the Health Minister Rudolf Zajac.

"The number of patients coming with complaints appears to have decreased. We will be able to see more objective results in a couple of months," said Juraj Vančík, head of the private Košice-Šaca hospital.

However, doctors in other hospitals report that they have not seen decreases, and others say numbers usually decrease over the summer period.
