Languages of publication
In eight regions audited by NIK in 2016 and 2017, the gynaecological and obstetrical services for outpatients were provided – respectively in the two audited years – in 1,204 and 1,170 clinics, out of which only 199 (16.5%) and 181 (15.5%) were located in rural areas, while 361 (30%) and 357 (30.5%) in the municipal-rural local units. In 2016, the number of gynaecological-obstetrical clinics was from 72 (Podlaskie Region) to 300 (Wielkopolskie Region), including from six in rural areas in the Podlaskie Region and seven in the Opolskie Region, to 50 in the Podkarpackie Region and 41 in the Łódzkie Region (22.2%). A year later, the access to the services of gynaecological-obstetrical clinics for rural citizens further deteriorated.
