The first appointment will last 30 minutes and will be combined with a package of free tests, to start writing the medical file. The duration of the following appointments will be 15 minutes.
It is the duty of all personal physicians to contact registered citizens to complete their medical records, even if they do not come for an appointment.
The goal is for the whole population, the healthy population, not necessarily the people who are sick, to enter into a process early on to have a doctor do free of charge preventive tests without involvement and to create a file. The personal physician provides comprehensive and continuous care to the individual in order to prevent disease and promote health.

The Ministry of Health proceeded with the inclusion in the institution of the personal doctor – in addition to pathologists and general practitioners – of all pathological specialties and the contracts will be ready at the beginning of October, so that there is a sufficient number of doctors. According to the decision, as Personal Physicians, specialty doctors with basic training in Pathology are also defined, namely: a) hematology, b) gastroenterology, c) endocrinology-diabetology, d) cardiology, e) neurology, f) nephrology, g) rheumatology, h) pathological oncology, i) pulmonology-tuberculology and j) physical medicine and rehabilitation, who practice a liberal profession and maintain a private practice.
It is noted that an extension is being given to the application of disincentives for not registering with the personal doctor for December 1st. In other words, he will have an additional participation of 10%, in addition to his participation rate determined on a case-by-case basis, in the pharmaceutical expenses for laboratory and diagnostic tests and operations, in hospitalizations in private clinics and in other benefits. From 1/1/2023 the above provisions are increased by 10%.
Those who register will have priority from 1/1/2023, when planning their regular outpatient visits in public secondary and tertiary health care units.
