Changes to procurement of medical devices passed

The National Assembly passed changes to public procurement legislation which regulate purchases of medical devices by introducing a system of reference prices.

The coalition claims this will result in lower prices, while the opposition warns that more taxpayer money will be channelled into private pockets. Under the new legislation, the reference price will be defined in a public procurement procedure and set by a newly-established government office in charge of central records.
