Over the next four years, the Swedish government is planning to invest some SKr13 billion ($1.3 billion) in the health service. The aim is to support the services of the county councils and the cash will be used to promote measures which allow greater patient access to the health service. The government hopes that the extra money will cut hospital waiting times and aims to secure treatment for patients within three months. It will also be employed to extend the primary care sector and improve elderly and psychiatric care.
