“The Pirogov (emergency hospital) case is a signal that the reform in our health system brooks no delay, especially in light of the forthcoming, according to experts, new Covid wave,” Minister of Health in the caretaker cabinet Stoycho Katsarov stated in an interview for the BNR’s Horizont channel.  

The problem is that the distribution of financing among hospitals has been growing more and more centralized in recent years, he said, and the connection has been broken with the demand and supply of medical assistance. Money should be transferred to hospitals for high-quality work that has actually been done.

“The cardinal mistake in the healthcare system is that the activity is paid first and then ways are sought to absorb the money. This leads to bad results in the hospital sphere,” Minister Katsarov said.
