People’s Deputy Andriy Derkach filed a lawsuit in the Kiev County Administrative Court, demanding to cancel the imposition of electronic prescriptions for people who live in the villages and cannot arrange them in time and therefore can’t get medicines.

He wrote about it on his Facebook page.

Derkach noted that it is possible to impose electronic prescriptions only after thorough preparation.

” I filed a lawsuit with a request to cancel the electronic prescriptions until the system of its arrangement is stable and until all doctors will be sufficiently computerized. Until any person- from Hlukhiv, Yampol and Seredyna-Bud regions – can arrange and receive medicines without compromising health”, – noted Derkach.

He also said that e-prescription questions are often coming up in meetings with people.

” I regularly communicate with people in Sumy region. And you know, with what question they approach me more and more often: how to get “affordable medicines”, if there is no possibility to issue an electronic prescription? What to do if the doctor is sick, and no one else would issue a prescription? What if you can’t go to the hospital for a prescription right now (who ever drove our roads – will understand), and it’s impossible to write the prescription out a few days earlier before the previous one expires? ”, -wrote Derkach.

He noted that the idea with electronic recipes is proper, but its thoughtless realization only made the peoples lives worse.

“In fact, the idea of implementation of an electronic prescriptions is proper. But its easy only on paper … The thoughtless realization of this idea made the peoples life only worse, it left the residents of villages and small towns without any medicines at all. Under existing conditions, without thorough preliminary preparation, they cannot be introduced, ” – concluded Derkach .

As is well known, Andriy Derkach filed a lawsuit to the European Court of Human Rights due to the fact that there is no minister of health for more than two years in the country.
