Press release 137/2016

Based on the negotiations and preparatory work carried out by the ministerial working group on reforms, the Government has agreed on further policy outlines on the healthcare and social welfare reform. These outlines steer legislative work on the reform of the organisation of healthcare and social welfare services and on the reform of the freedom of choice and the multichannel funding system.

In the same connection, the Government agreed on the responsibilities to be transferred to the level of county government.

The contents of the reform will be adopted in line with the issued outlines when the Government agrees to circulate the draft government proposal for comment.
