KARÁCSONY PROMISES FAR-REACHING DEVELOPMENT OF OUT-PATIENT SERVICES

 

The most far-reaching development of out-patient services in the past 30 years is about to start in order to help Budapest residents live healthier and longer lives, the city’s mayor, Gergely Karácsony, said at the opening of a new diagnostics centre in the city’s Zugló district. In line with an agreement with the government, some 50 billion forints (EUR 150m) will be spent on developments in the next few years, Karácsony said in the new cardio-metabolic and onco-cardiology centre in Örs Vezér Square. Director of the Zugló Health Service András Csaba Nagy said the local council of Zugló had added 85 million forints to the 511 million forints received from the government for the centre, which he said will be able to provide a better service to patients suffering from multiple diseases.
