The Turkish minister of health, Dr Osman Durmus, has outlined three major objectives for improving the country's health system. The minister said that he favoured granting more power for self-government to the hospitals, improving preventative healthcare services and placing greater emphasis on long-term care and rehabilitation, reports the Turkish Daily News. In order to allow hospitals to work around the clock, he proposes a system whereby personnel would work in shifts. He also intends to promote social health insurance for all and private investment in the industry.
