ST. PETERSBURG, November 2 (Itar-Tass) —— Russian President Dmitry Medvedev instructed to make an inspection of medical institutions, which are subordinate to the federal authorities and are funded from the federal budget rather than regional budgets.
At a meeting with St. Petersburg Governor Georgy Poltavchenko in St. Petersburg Medvedev noted that frequently the salaries of the doctors, who work in federal medical institutions, are much lower than those of their colleagues working in regional medical institutions.
“We should decide in general at which level medical institutions are funded. We have many federal structures in the regions, where budget-financed workers receive less than regional workers fulfilling the same work. We should make an inspection who and where one should stay,” the president pointed out.
He added that people are frequently indifferent from which budget they receive the salary, the most important thing is that it meets the city level.
For his part, Poltavchenko gave an example that the average salary of doctors makes 30,000-31,000 roubles in St. Petersburg, meanwhile, those workers of medical institutions that are funded from the federal budget, receive the salary of about 16,000-17,000 roubles.
Speaking on the health care situation in St. Petersburg, Poltavchenko noted that the city budget envisages the funds to design and build new facilities for the Dzhanelidze First Aid Clinic from the city budget in 2012-2014.
The president emphasized that this clinic needs modern facilities and equipment, so that the urgent medical aid is provided at a high level in St. Petersburg.
