According to the chief freelance oncologist of the Ministry of Health Andrei Kaprin, the shortage of oncologists in Russian clinics has reached almost two thousand people. This problem is less acute in Moscow and St. Petersburg, and most seriously – in the clinics of the Far East and the North Caucasus.
"According to the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation, today there is a shortage of oncologists in the outpatient clinics of 1987 people," RIA Novosti reports.
Novye Izvestia has repeatedly written about the catastrophic shortage of doctors in the regions of Russia. The shortage of doctors in the Altai Territory, for example, was recognized even by the regional Minister of Health. According to official figures, the number of doctors there is 48.5%, and that of mid-level specialists is 60.8%. In the Novosibirsk region, 2,000 doctors are lacking, including 400 doctors and 1,500 mid-level specialists. Last summer and autumn, a number of regions of Russia were shocked by scandals in connection with the mass layoffs of doctors due to low salaries, processing and lack of conditions for the full treatment of patients in hospitals.
According to the Ministry of Health, in the whole country polyclinics are in short supply of more than 25 thousand doctors and about 130 thousand nurses and other mid-level staff. In addition to oncologists, there are not enough psychiatrists, orthopedists, oculists, neurologists, paramedics, ambulances and many other specialists. To solve the problem, the Ministry of Labor and the Ministry of Health four months ago announced their readiness to attract migrant doctors. Foreign doctors were planning to issue Russian passports in a simplified manner.
