The MP from the OPPOSITION BLOC Ihor Shurma urged his colleagues in the parliament to consider Decision No. 5442 on the recognition of the work of Acting Minister of Health Uliana Suprun unsatisfactory and apply to the Cabinet regarding her dismissal from office. He stated this, speaking on the platform of the Verkhovna Rada on Wednesday, May 16.
Ihor Shurma stressed that for three years the Ministry of Health could not even develop a concept for the development of the industry.
"Today, no one has an answer to the question of which health care model we are building. After three years of reformers' work, there is not even a concept for the development of the industry. There is no plan for implementing this concept, and as a result, we have point bills that do not work today," the opposition leader said.
According to Ihor Shurma, even the electronic system for registration of contracts from patients is not licensed.
"Today there is agitation among the population to sign treaties with doctors. This will all be registered in the electronic system. But nobody says that this system is not licensed, that contracts do not bear legal force. And when there will be disputes, everyone will ask who approved this agreement. A sample of the contract was approved by a public organization," the parliamentarian added.
Ihor Shurma also drew attention to the selectivity with which new feldsher-midwifery stations are opening in Ukraine. "Yesterday I watched as the president opened the Feldsher-midwifery station in the Kyiv region. He said that it was made for money, which they managed to return to Ukraine. That is, the opening was held for the state budget. If the region did this, this is one thing. I have a question - and why the Kyiv area? Why the village Bodenki? Why did representatives of any party go with him? That is because the elections start," the opposition politician pointed out.
According to him, the Ministry of Health does not know the information even about the causes of a number of diseases and deaths of Ukrainians. "Yesterday at the meeting of the profile committee we did not receive any answers from the Ministry of Health regarding the cause of the death of children in the Ternopil region. We did not receive a response to what happened to the children in the Cherkasy region, where more than 50 children were hospitalized, which happened in Novomoskovsk. This is all due to the fact that the Ministry of Health does not have a leader," the opposition leader said.
Ihor Shurma once again addressed his colleagues in the parliament with a demand to consider the Resolution on the recognition of the work of Acting Minister of Health Uliana Suprun unsatisfactory and apply to the Cabinet regarding her dismissal from office.
"Finally, enter Resolution No. 5442 in the hall, vote "for", appoint a minister and bear political responsibility," the MP said.
