In Crimea, the shortage of doctors and medical staff is more than 2 thousand people

CrimeaPRESS reports:

The shortage of medical personnel in the Republic of Crimea is 2.3 thousand people; the authorities are studying the practices of other Russian regions where this problem is being solved. This was announced by the head of the region, Sergei Aksenov, during a video conference call with President Vladimir Putin.

In February, Aksenov said that the personnel shortage in medical organizations in Crimea is estimated at 1.5 thousand people, including doctors, paramedics and junior medical staff.

There is still a shortage of doctors. Today we have a shortage of 1,700 junior and mid-level personnel and about 600 doctors directly in their areas. We focus on colleagues in the regions, look at practices— quotes TASS Sergei Aksenov.

In general, speaking about the healthcare industry in the republic, Aksenov noted that since 2014 it has “completely re-equipped”: ambulances are being purchased, new hospitals and first aid stations are being built.

In March, Vladimir Ustinov, Plenipotentiary Representative of the President of the Russian Federation in the Southern Federal District, told TASS that over 10 years, 941 healthcare facilities have been overhauled on the peninsula: 900 in the Republic of Crimea and 41 in Sevastopol. Also, over 10 years, 288 paramedic and obstetric centers and medical outpatient clinics were created on the peninsula, of which 273 were in the Republic of Crimea and 15 in Sevastopol.

The plenipotentiary also noted that the healthcare system in Crimea also has common problems inherent in other regions of Russia. These include a lack of nursing staff and doctors in certain in-demand specialties.
