The minimum level of doctors ‘ salaries need to increase to 170 percent of the average wage in the region. This was stated by the head of the Ministry of health of Russia Veronika Skvortsova at a meeting on the modernization of primary health care with the President of Russia Vladimir Putin.
We are talking about primary care physicians — catchment area, the General practitioners and narrow specialists. Meanwhile, emergency doctors salaries should not be less than 200 percent of the average for the region, the Minister said. For nurses minimum wage level should not be below 70 percent of average salaries for paramedics — not less than 120 percent.
Skvortsova assured that the installation of such wages does not require additional funding. “This is a purely organizational action. Please support,” — said the Minister.
Measures to improve the level of wages should contribute to addressing the shortage of medical personnel, said Skvortsova. She called to assign the share of payments of salaries in the wage structure, that is, the guaranteed wage, not below 55 percent.
