No applicants for GP vacancies
No applications came in for the six general practitioner vacancies that were advertised in the spring.
The vacancies were spread over the following four medical districts: Norðuroyggjar, Suðuroy, Skálafjørður and Vestmanna.
Heilsutrygd (the Public Health Insurance) is working on a plan to add three new GP clinics to the existing 34 – one in Tórshavn, one in Klaksvík and one in Fuglafjørður medical districts.
The Ministry of Health has requested funding for these new clinics.
