“Storm” in the health sector: PM Rama urges directors to resign
Prime Minister Edi Rama urged directors of regional and municipal hospitals to resign, due to the low performance and indifference shown over the years in solving problems.
PM Rama ruled out only directors of Tirana’s hospitals, who, according to him, were closer to the patients.
“It is an inherited plague, but on the other hand, our medical staff cannot lack the willingness to respond in time and with quality to the patient, because the patient deserves it. We are not 27 years behind, we are 270 years behind. Who is responsible for this? You are. Managing staff has a great responsibility for managing human resources and making the right decisions in time to respond appropriately to the needs of ethics and dignity,” the prime minister said.
While addressing the problems and the need for reform that the health sector is facing today, Rama said that the entire hospitals team will be solved through contests that will take place in September.
Also, he invited current executives who think that are capable of running the hospitals.
“Removing all current managers of hospitals and public health institutions and affirmation of a new manager profile manager in the hospital service through public contests for each hospital director and institution of public health in the Republic of Albania,” PM Rama said.
The Prime Minister warned of a complete restructuring of the organization in the areas of public health institutions, the launch of the process for the implementation of Hospital Autonomy as well as new structures and mechanisms of service through public-private partnerships.
