The Medical Chamber of Slovenia assesses as positive the predictions of the Minister of Health after serious and comprehensive reforms in health care based on analyzes and data presented and with the inclusion of all stakeholders and the search for a national consensus.
The Medical Chamber of Slovenia is ready to help with reforms in healthcare from a professional perspective. According to them, the minister pointed out the key problems of health care in the areas that are constantly pointed out in the chamber, namely the lack of personnel, especially doctors, especially family doctors, the need for administrative relief, the transfer of competences and better organization at the primary level. “The goal is equal and equal access to the health care system for all residents,” they wrote in response.
“We are glad that the minister emphasized that our Slovenian healthcare system is extremely good and highly valued abroad as well. We agree, however, that it is imperative that matters in the field of organization, management and financing begin to be regulated systematically, based on analyses, with measures that are verified in the international environment and based on the widest possible consensus,” she emphasized Bojana Beovićpresident of the chamber and added that it is important to ensure that the system will be sustainable in the future and will be able to maintain this professional and high-quality level of health services and significantly improve accessibility.
“We support the strengthening of primary health care, the removal of bureaucracy from doctors and especially from primary level clinics, and all efforts to give space to professional work with patients. We expect that doctors at the primary level will be provided with enough time for the patient, an empowered support team that will carried out the work with his own competencies and full responsibility and the possibility of performing rapid diagnostics. We also very much welcome the promises about the appropriate digitization of the system.” however, the announcements of the Minister of Health Bešič Loredana commented Rok Ravnikarchairman of the Committee for Primary Health Care.
