The number of doctors in the republic will increase by about 70 people. It is also planned to increase the technical equipment and re-equipment of clinics, Yakutia 24 TV channel reports with the reference to the Regional Head’s Administration.
“In general, we plan to increase the number of doctors by 69-70 people. The quality of medical services does not depend much on how many orderlies or nurses work in a medical organization. Of course, this is also important, but, primarily, it is about the number of doctors,” said Chairman of Yakutia Government Vladimir Solodov.
He added that the republic government also plans to increase the technical equipment and to re-equip polyclinics, rural health posts and outpatient clinics.
In addition, Solodov announced that the republic government is closely engaged in employment of doctors and medical workers. The corresponding order was given to the republic state committee on employment.
“The issue of employment, of course, is relevant, and we will closely deal with it. I want to inform you that more than 730 current vacancies are already available in medical institutions. We will discuss and work on the issue to create substituting jobs. First of all, of course, in the field of entrepreneurship, but also in the public sector,” said Solodov.
