The Constitutional Court will consider the ban of the Cabinet of Ministers on planned medical operations for medical institutions, which was introduced in November 2020, after the amendment of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine Resolution No. 641 of July 22, 2020. The CCU will hold a meeting, based on the results of which a decision will be made on whether this prohibition complies with the Constitution of Ukraine.
The People's Deputy Aleksandr Dubinskyi was notified of this by the Third Collegium of Judges of the Second Senate of the Constitutional Court of Ukraine.
We want to remind you that the ban on planned medical operations during the period of quarantine restrictions was introduced with several exceptions. Doctors were allowed to operate on non-coronavirus patients only if their inaction for other diseases threatens human life and health (strokes, heart attacks). It was also allowed:
• to provide assistance in difficult pregnancy and childbirth;
•to help pregnant women, women in labor, newborns;
•to operate on people with cancer;
• to provide palliative medical care in inpatient conditions.
In all other cases, only COVID-19 patients are given priority. The deputy Aleksandr Dubinskyi considers it unacceptable since such an approach poses a threat to the health and lives of many citizens.
