The Prague interception station is the oldest against land. It has been located on the premises of the Bulovka University Hospital since 2004 and, according to Johnová, it is hers functioning for a number of reasons problem. In addition to the absence of addict services, which specializes in people with substance abuse or addiction disorders, it also has economic problems, as up to a fifth of clients are homeless people who are unable to pay 3,000 crowns for sleeping and spend the night regularly.
The whole concept is according to the councilor anachronism, but in Czech conditions it is enshrined in legislation. She added that it should be transformed to move the facility under the new institution emphasis on repression for the treatment of alcohol dependence. “We have a promised addictive care contract. The problem is, of course, the availability of addictologists, but I believe that if someone starts doing it, it will be better, “she said.
Opposition representative Radek Lacko (YES) added doubts. “It is illusory to think that People who end there three times a week or sometimes twice will be interested in addictology services“He said. He added that, according to him, the city should negotiate with health insurance companies about the possibility of paying for the station’s services, and if that does not work, it would be better to cancel it altogether.
“I believe that we will find a model that will be economically viable and perhaps quite dramatically different“John said in response. She added that the city, for example, wants to negotiate with hospitals to see if it can reserve and secure roomsthat would be used to sleep intoxicated people. “If it was done in more places, it would free up capacity in the trap,” she said.
Negotiations at the beginning
According to John, the move under the MNNP could take place in the summer, but negotiations are at the beginning and a working group will be set up for them. This will also address another organizational change, which is the transfer of the Ministry of Health to the hospital. MZS was originally established as a contributory organization of the city, which was to take over Na Františku Hospital from Prague 1. However, this eventually came to an end and in 2020 the municipality changed the organization to its current form, which is to provide service services for medical organizations of the Prague City Hall.
According to Jonová, the Ministry of Health should continue to be in charge within the MNNP central purchasing and should also focus on the area of mental health care, which will be addressed by its authorized director Pavel Novák. “It is preparing the launch of a center that should focus on psychosocial development and health prevention,” the councilor explained.
Organizational changes are part of a plan to build a health consortium, in which Prague’s health and social organizations could gradually get involved. “The interest in joining the consortium is not as great as we thought,” the councilor said today. According to her, the city has so far selected measures from the extensive plan that can be implemented quickly. The next steps will be discussed.
