As a result of the reform of the healthcare system, in particular, the change in the funding principle, salaries of physicians and healthcare workers increased 4-4.5-fold. Deputy Prime Minister of Ukraine Pavlo Rozenko announced at a press conference in Myrhorod.
"We no longer finance the walls and premises, we finance a person - patient and doctor. As a result of changing the principle of financing, the quality of services for patients is improving, and the motivation of doctors is increasing, because their wages are growing significantly. If half a year ago, the average salary of a doctor, for example, in Poltava region, amounted at the level of UAH 4.5 thousand, today the junior medical staff gets already UAH 9 thousand, and the doctor, depending on how many contracts he signed, - UAH 18-20 thousand", he stressed.
"That is, in fact, the wage of medical workers as a result of healthcare system reform increased 4-4.5-fold", the Deputy Prime Minister underlined.
