Despite the positives of the recent legislative changes enabling foreign doctors to help in the Slovak health-care system during the coronavirus pandemic, there are certain reservations.
“We welcome this possibility, but still have several fundamental objections,” said Manuchekhr Burkhanov, chair of the International Association of Doctors in Slovakia (MALnS), as quoted by the SITA newswire.
The amendment to the law on health-care providers enabling foreign doctors to help during the coronavirus pandemic was approved by the parliament in mid-May.
