This was stated by the deputy of the Odessa Regional Council from the OPPOSITION BLOC, deputy head of the permanent commission on health and social policy Irina Kovalish.
According to the deputy on April 21, deputies of Shiryaevsky district council at the session will initiate consideration of the appeal to the regional governor Maxim Stepanov with the demand to attribute the population of Shiryaevsky district on medical care to the hospital district in the city of Odessa.
“The deputies of the district council themselves initiated this appeal, regardless of their factional membership. The likelihood of acceptance of such treatment is very high. And if this happens, then this will be a precedent. Because earlier certain areas, outraged by the opacity of the formation of hospital districts, expressed through the decisions of the session their dissatisfaction with the proposed by the regional state administration 11 variants of hospital districts. Disagree with the option of regional officials remain Bolgrad, Kiliya, Sarata, Tatarbunary and Razdelnaya. In Shiryaevo they went further. They want residents of the district to be treated in Odessa, and budget legislation, in particular, allows it,” Irina Kovalish commented on the situation.
The deputies of the Shiryaevsky district council motivate their initiative by the fact that from Shiryaevo to the proposed hospital centers in Berezovka and Velikomikhailovka the distance is more than 60 kilometers, and there is no automobile connection with normal roads between these district centers.
Recall that in the OPPOSITION BLOC the issue of the formation of regional districts by the regional state administration is called not transparent and unduly politicized. In particular, earlier Irina Kovalish stressed that in the Odessa region, when forming hospital districts, not medical indicators but political spheres of influence are taken into account.
