Employers of Poland have sent an official letter to Minister of Health Konstanty Radziwiłł urging him to stop social consultations on the regulation regarding the criteria for awarding medical contracts. In our view, the draft includes a number of mistakes, is not in accordance with the law and should be assessed by the so-called “working team for legislative absurdities” to consult.
The letter in question, sent by Vicepresident of Employers of Poland Andrzej Mądrala, is attached below (in Polish).
Employers of Poland are of the opinion that the draft evidently has been prepared hastily and contains many grave errors. One striking example is the regulation stating that a healthcare entity with a certificate of the Quality Monitoring Centre will get two points deducted! This and other similar mistakes force Employers of Poland to ask the Minister of Health to verify the draft prepared by his employees once again. It should be assessed by the so-called “working team for legislative absurdities”, which should also present a report on possible simplification of the regulations pertinent to providing healthcare services.
Only after these issues are addressed can the draft be the subject of another round of social consultations. According to Employers of Poland the quality of legislation should be improved and excessive requirements removed – for the good of the healthcare system and therefore the patients as well.
