Patients with chronic diseases for routine treatment will be referred to other health facilities where they do not treat COVID-19. Such patient access routes are being developed.
This was stated in an interview with the “Mirror of the week” by the president of the National Health Service Oksana Movchan.
“The so-called patient routes are being developed. Patient flows will be redirected, patients informed accordingly. On the side of the head of the region or directly to the mayor, there will certainly be communication with patients about the hospitals from which they can now receive the services they need, ”said Movchan.
She added that work in the regions to determine the routes is already underway.
