Law drafting continues for the regional government reform and the health and social services reform
Law drafting continues for the regional government, health and social services reform. The pro-posals for the Freedom of Choice Act and the Act on the Financing of the Counties that are under consideration in Parliament will be amended as required by the statement of the Constitutional Law Committee of Parliament. Parliament will decide how the regional government, health and social services reform will proceed in the autumn term 2018. The aim is that the responsibility for organising health and social services would be transferred to the new counties on 1 January 2021, while freedom of choice would come into force in stages.
