DK Calls on HR Minister to Review Hospitals


The leftist Democratic Coalition (DK) called on Human Resources Minister Miklós Kásler to join DK members in visiting Budapest’s Honvéd hospital in the wake of news reports saying that the hospital’s neonatal ward will have to be closed on December 15 for lack of funding.

DK lawmaker Lajos Oláh told a press conference on Wednesday that Honvéd’s NICU ward is one of only four in Budapest equipped to care for children born before the 33rd week of pregnancy and under 1,500 grams.

Kásler should focus on the lack of workforce and the lengthy waiting times in Hungarian hospitals “instead of campaigning with Serbia’s appreciation of Hungarian stadiums”, Oláh said.
