The healthcare point on the Elaphite islands and the Kolocep clinic is set to be financed by the City of Dubrovnik going forward until the new Croatian Emergency Medicine Network is adopted.

As Morski writes on the 26th of September, 2020, the Mayor of the City of Dubrovnik, Mato Frankovic and his associates held a working meeting with the director of the Dubrovnik Health Centre, Branko Bazdan, and the director of the Dubrovnik-Neretva County Institute of Emergency Medicine, Luka Lulic.

It was pointed out at the meeting that the City of Dubrovnik has been fully financing the work of the health point on the nearby Elaphite (Elafiti) islands just north of Dubrovnik over the last three years, after it ceased to be part of the Emergency Medicine Network and thus the Croatian Institute of Public Health no longer financed it.

Since the development of a new Emergency Medicine Network is underway, Mayor Mato Frankovic will hold a meeting with the Minister of Health Vili Beros on this topic, all in order to re-finance the emergency medical service point by the Croatian Institute of Public Health, it was announced at the meeting.

Until the new Emergency Medicine Network is adopted, the City of Dubrovnik will continue to fund the emergency medical centre on the Elaphite islands, which includes the work of the Kolocep clinic.

Furthermore, given the excellent cooperation that the City of Dubrovnik has developed in recent years with the Health Centre, which is reflected in the provision of space use and funding for the pediatric clinic in Mokosica, funding for doctors and nurses in the pediatric clinic and much more, the City of Dubrovnik has provided for the purchase of two ambulances for the needs of the Health Centre, ie, the County Institute of Emergency Medicine. On top of that, a decision was made to continue financing the work of the doctor at the Kolocep clinic.

Although primary health care is not the responsibility of the City of Dubrovnik, but of the wider Dubrovnik-Neretva County, the City of Dubrovnik continues to develop many high standards in health care and aids the work of health care institutions in its area with continuous donations.
