The campaign to select doctors of primary healthcare will be rolled out on April 2. At the same time, the process of signing declarations with family doctors, therapists and pediatricians was launched last year during a test mode of the electronic health system. At present, 106 thousand declarations are registered in the system.
Choosing a doctor means to select a therapist, pediatrician or family doctor, whom you are ready to entrust your health. By signing a declaration with them, you notify the state that primary healthcare institutions in cities and communities that joined the reform, will receive payments for healthcare services for each patient from the National Health Service of Ukraine.
A national campaign “Choose Your Doctor” that will start from April, is not limited to the implementation timeline, thus it will continue until all citizens choose their doctors. So you can sign the declaration in April, in June or in October. At the same time, please pay attention to the fact the doctors can only accept a certain number of patients: family doctors – 1800 persons, therapists – 2000 persons and pediatricians – 900 persons.
