Moscow doctors protest at healthcare reforms

Text size Aa Aa

Moscow doctors held a protest on Sunday against planned healthcare reforms which they claim will lead to hospital closures and job losses.

Holding posters saying “Stop the collapse of Moscow’s medicine!”, the medics from the “ Together for Decent Medicine” movement say five thousand employees of Moscow’s medical institutions are to be laid off.

Russia’s much needed reform of the health service which is well into its second year, has been criticised as being too fast, poorly implemented and too expensive.
