There is a shortage of doctors

It sounds promising for family doctor care in the west of the district: a young doctor from serbia has just taken over the country doctor's practice in obbach, a young woman doctor set up her practice in niederwerrn a few days ago, and a general practitioner has been present in wulfershausen since october. So everything is fine in the schweinfurt-north demand planning area? Not at all.

The good news cannot conceal the fact that there are still major difficulties in the supply of family doctors between wasserlosen and stadtlauringen. "There are no longer enough primary care physicians available to stabilize the supply situation in the long term", the bavarian association of statutory health insurance physicians (KVB) also states. Currently, there are 6.5 vacant general practitioner seats in the schweinfurt-nord region, which is the sad leader in all of bavaria behind tirschenreuth with seven vacant seats.

If emergency services are blocked, the fine rises to 65 euros and one point in flensburg. In addition, the wrong parkers may be towed away immediately.

“Education is expensive in Germany”

In cases like this, the lina bauerschmidt foundation can help. It has set itself the goal of providing financial support for talented and needy young people in their professional careers.

Here "the mass of the case is burdened with excessive costs and that is not in the sense of the legal regulation," said the lawyer.
