In Latvia, funding is allocated for the payment of an additional employee in a family doctor’s practice in January

For January 2023, payment for the employment of an additional employee, which was introduced last year for the provision of Covid-19 vaccination, is scheduled for family doctor’s practices. This is what the government decided on Tuesday, January 31, making changes to the “Organization and payment procedure for health care services”.

The involvement of an additional employee in the work of a family doctor’s practice has provided an opportunity for family doctors to plan and ensure the provision of health care services more efficiently. A large number of family doctors included in the duties of an additional employee not only the duties of ensuring vaccination against Covid-19, but also involved in the organization of other preventive measures and the organization of the treatment process.

The hiring of an additional employee in the family doctor’s practice was planned for the period from January 1, 2022 to July 1, 2022, but then it was extended until December 31, 2022.

The necessary financing, in addition to the payment of the employee in the family doctor’s practice, reaches 524,298 euros in January.
