Parliament passes amendment to health care law

Parliament approved on December 6 an amendment to the Act on Health Care Providers that reintroduces medical districts for general practitioners, gynecologists and dentists. District doctors will not be able to reject a patient with permanent residence in the district where they serve. However, the new law does not revoke a patient's right to choose a doctor. As of January, patients will be able to visit a specialist only with a written recommendation from their general practitioner. SITA
