During the visit to the Health Center in Haabersti, the vice mayors of Tallinn Taavi Aas and Merike Martinson promised that the city will provide additional funds to the capital hospitals, in order to shorten queues for cardiologists.
"The most deaths in Estonia are caused by blood circulation diseases. In different years more than half of the deaths were caused only by that,"- said Merike Martinson.
"Queues for cardiologists are very long, but often exactly the help in the right time can save someone`s life. Unavailability of the doctor makes many to give up on their health, and in the end, it leads to sad consequences. The Centrist Party decided that capital hospitals should be provided with additional funds to shorten lines for cardiologists," - Martinson said.
In his turn, Taavi Aas assured that the city will continue the project which lies in creating the Tallinn Hospital. "Of course, this is very ambitious task, but it is obvious that as soon as we implement this project, services in the health field will reach a new, higher level," - Aas said.
Both vice-mayors confirmed that the work plans of the Centrist Party include, among others, the development of a program, through which the streets of the capital will be more comfortable for people with disabilities, as well as the development of a nursing home in Iru.
