Union of Towns and Association says towns hurt by lack of enough medical/dental services
Smaller towns and villages are beginning to suffer a lack of medical and dental services, the Union of Towns and Associations has confirmed. The union is to begin talks with regional authorities as well as insurance companies to try and improve the situation. Representatives of villages and small towns in the region of Karlovy Vary, meeting on Wednesday, confirmed that action needed to be taken, for example offering health care workers already well-equipped facilities as an incentive. The number of GPs and dentists has dropped in part due to retirement age as well as a lower number of graduates entering the field.
