Slovak Health Ministry to support integrated healthcare centres outside big cities

The Slovak Health Ministry wants to support the creation of integrated healthcare centres that will be set up in regions outside of large cities and towns and will bring together GPs, paediatricians and specialists in one place.

The aim of the project is to ensure better availability of outpatient medical services, especially in those areas where it has been difficult for patients to access medical care. Each centre will have at least one GP, as well as specialists focusing on the needs of a given region.

The project will be financed from EU funds. The value of funding earmarked for the call from the European Regional Development Fund amounts to €70m, while the maximum contribution per proposal has been set at €700,000.
