Negotiations are ongoing between Denmark's Hovedstadens Sygehusfaellesskab, the association for hospitals in the capital, and the hospitals in Scania, southern Sweden, to allow patients to travel from Sweden to Copenhagen for bypass operations. At present there is a waiting time of three weeks for a bypass operation at the national hospital in Copenhagen, whereas in Scania it is three times this length. The Danes have declared that until their own waiting time is cut to two weeks they cannot accept Swedish patients. There are also discussions concerning other reciprocal treatments such as severe burns cases.
