"While in the Constitution there is article 49, introduction of paid medicine is a crime", - the head of the Nikolaev regional organization of the Ukrainian people's party Yury Shirko declared.
In his opinion, each citizen of Ukraine from whom in hospital money for treatment will demand, can file a lawsuit, and the chief physician of this institution has to be responsible for Constitution violation. About it reports a press - service of the Nikolaev regional organization of the Ukrainian people's party.
"Article 49 of the Constitution of Ukraine accurately notes that "the state creates conditions for medical care effective and available to all citizens, in the state and municipal institutions of health care medical aid is provided gratuitously. That is, all institutions of health care which are financed from the state or municipal budget, are obliged to treat free of charge", - the representative of UNP claims.
"For reform of health care it is necessary to change the Constitution of Ukraine, to put conditions for development of insurance health system from the state. But while our state guarantees to the citizens free medicine - it has to be free", - Yury Shirko emphasized.
