President of Ukraine Victor Yanukovych criticized severely a work of the Health Ministry concerning reforming of medical branch.

According to an UNIAN correspondent, he said this delivering a speech at the session of the Economic Reform Committee Governing Board.

The President noted that it is necessary to approach the reform in health care branch carefully and not to carry it to extremes and frantic rush. “But “carefully” does not mean to mark time or move in a one step forward and two steps back way”, - said the head of the state.

According to the words of V. Yanukovych he does not see that leadership of the Health Ministry has accurate and integral understanding of reforming the medical sphere.

According to his words, a legislative base for carrying out reforms in the medical branch has not been formed yet.

The President of Ukraine also criticized severely activity of the Health Ministry in other directions that apply to reforms.
