Patients in Region Midtjylland must wait up to three weeks before they can be referred to private healthcare services

-

Patients in Region Midtjylland must wait up to three weeks before they can be referred to private healthcare services, DR revealed. Upon filling out an online form, the region’s patient office needs to respond within 30 days if the patient can be referred to such services. But, the region’s Hospitals Committee chairman, Purnima Erichsen said the three-week waiting period was due to the current summer holidays. She said regular waiting times were usually between one and two weeks. The region has also come under fire for longer waiting times, as it is the only region that asks patients to fill out the form. All other four regions attend to inquiries via phone call, with Region Nordjylland’s waiting time pegged at 30 minutes.
