The days from October 28 to November 7 in the capital were declared non-working in order to slow down the spread of COVID-19.

Despite the situation with the pandemic, Muscovites will be able to receive not only emergency, but also routine medical care. He told about this in an interview to the TV channel “Russia 1” Sergei Sobyanin…

“Indeed, during periods of peak incidence, it is very difficult to provide it due to the fact that the entire health care system works with increased stress. And the ambulance, and clinics, and hospitals – some of them are transferred to the fight against COVID-19. Nevertheless, we see an opportunity to preserve an important area – not only emergency, but also planned assistance, ”the Moscow Mayor emphasized.

As for cancer care: never, even in the most difficult conditions, the city did not reduce the volume of either planned or emergency care in oncology. “Because this is help that cannot be postponed until tomorrow,” stressed Sergei Sobyanin.

Moscow continues the reconstruction of existing and creation of modern cancer centers. As a result, world-class first-class therapeutic centers appear, where you can get advice, diagnostics, and medical care. Thus, the First City Oncological Hospital was reconstructed, and the building for outpatient treatment of patients with oncology was renewed there.

In addition, Moscow is introducing modern technologies and methods of treating cancer. In 2019, the city approved a new standard for cancer care. Based on it, six multidisciplinary oncological centers were organized on the basis of the largest hospitals. They consist of 24-hour hospitals, pathology laboratories and outpatient oncological care centers. Each of them was assigned one or two administrative districts of the capital.

Planned medical care in Moscow during the “long” weekend will remain in full

In cancer centers, the patient receives help at all stages of treatment… There you can undergo diagnostics, surgical treatment, drug therapy and dispensary observation. This allows you to speed up the diagnosis, improve its accuracy and start treatment faster. A total of 1,776 beds for cancer patients have been created in Moscow today, including 255 beds for radiological departments.
