Uhliarik and medical services head reject claims of short supplies

Claims concerning an alleged shortage of medicines and medical supplies for units of the Bratislava-based Emergency and Transport Medical Service (ZDZS) and the selection procedures for the post of its head are fabricated and serve a special purpose, Health Minister Ivan Uhliarik (Christian Democratic Movement (KDH)) told the TASR newswire on Tuesday, January 19.

Claims concerning an alleged shortage of medicines and medical supplies for units of the Bratislava-based Emergency and Transport Medical Service (ZDZS) and the selection procedures for the post of its head are fabricated and serve a special purpose, Health Minister Ivan Uhliarik (Christian Democratic Movement (KDH)) told the TASR newswire on Tuesday, January 19.

This is attested to, he said, by new information that ZDZS senior officials in Bratislava have discovered over the past two weeks. According to ZDZS head Vratko Šoka, 11 shady and unfavourable contracts totalling €826,000 were signed in the first half of 2010, when the body was under the control of then-director Boris Moťovský. Šoka told a press conference that the medical services have enough medicines and materials to provide urgent medical assistance in a problem-free manner. The lack of problems has been confirmed by individual units in written statements.
