Cash Incentives To Cut Patient Waiting Times

Published fredag 5 september 2008 kl 11.28
Health Minister Göran Hägglund

The Swedish government wants to pump in 150 million US dollars worth of cash into the health service in order to cut patient waiting times.

The money though is only available as an incentive for the country’s health authorities to cut waiting times. Those who manage to achieve the objectives written down in a guarantee to patients laid down by health minister Göran Hägglund, will receive their share of the extra money on offer.

The health guarantee came in at the start of Janaury 2007 and gave patients certain guarantees over waiting times for healthcare treatment.

However, the government says many patients still have long waiting times and the guarantees have not been met.
