Aiming to enable the continuity and availability of health care to acutely ill patients, the Department of Health and Social Welfare takes part in the co-financing of overheads and material expenses of the medical offices operating within the Health Centre of the Primorje – Gorski Kotar County, at the address Cambierieva 7, where special duty shifts are organised. Moreover, the Department co-finances the shift work of physicians in the preschool health care activity on Saturdays.

Special work in shifts in general / family medicine, preschool health care and dental health care are co-financed by the City of Rijeka to a larger extent than that prescribed by the Croatian Public Health Institute.

In order to make the health service more available, it has been agreed that in the duty medical office at the address Via Cambieri 7 duty hours shall take place:

  • on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays, general medicine / family medicine and preschool health care from 8.00 to 20.00h,
  • dental health care on weekdays from 20.00 to 24.00, and on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays from 8.00 to 24.00 h.

Moreover, special duty shifts are co-financed by the Department in the preschool health protection activity on Saturdays from 8.00 am to 3.00 pm since this service has not been agreed with the Croatian Public Health Institute.
