This article was originally published in Clinica
Italian health minister Girolamo Sirchia has confirmed his commitment to reforming the medical profession in hospitals as a means to improving hospital throughput, after admitting delays in proceedings aimed at legislating on the issue. The current pause in passing the decree through parliament will last "only a few months" to allow for the "verification of details" with the trades' unions and the regional health authorities. Patients are currently forced to pay for treatment, he said, in order to avoid the long and growing waiting lists.
