The Ministry of Health continues to monitor the situation with social payments to doctors. By now, more than 816 thousand medical workers have received support. Accruals continue.

Social benefits are accrued to primary care physicians. Earlier, problems in this area were reported by Izvestia. According to doctors, officials, trade unions and hospital management do not have a common understanding of which of the doctors should receive an allowance and in what amount.

"The implementation of special social payments to doctors continues. As of March 24, payments have been accrued to more than 816 thousand medical workers in 89 regions of the country", - Alexey Kuznetsov, Assistant Minister of Health of the Russian Federation, told RIA Novosti.

He added that earlier in March, the ministry issued clarifications on the accrual of surcharges. By this order, the department expects to remove all questions.

Recall that at the end of last year, President Vladimir Putin announced the introduction of an additional payment to the salaries of primary care physicians from the new year. Then it was noted that the amount of payment will be the same for each category of health workers, regardless of the region. The amount of surcharges varies between 4.5-18.5 thousand rubles. In total, about 1.1 million people can count on the payment.
