The shortage of health workers on the peninsula is being experienced by not only small towns but big cities as well.
For example, the "authorities" of the city of Sevastopol have allocated RUB 70 million from the local budget to compensate the relocation of health workers from other regions, Sobytiya reports.
According to the "Acting Director of the Department of Health" Yuri Voskanyan, Sevastopol faced a shortage of 800 doctors and 1,500 nurses in 2014.
“We have been addressing this problem for two years, and have reduced its acuteness. Today we lack about 600 doctors and 1,000 nurses,” Voskanyan said.
At the same time, he noted that mainly pensioners – 1,100 health workers – have been involved in the health care field, and almost 500 people will retire in the next five years.
Reportedly, after the visit of Russian Prime Minister Medvedev to the peninsula, the Crimea residents complained about the poor quality of medical services, following which the "official" gave instructions to dismiss all paramedics and hire new ones.
Therefore, the residents of Crimea and Sevastopol have to use paid medical services until the beginning of October.
