In June 2021 Public Opinion Research Centre included a block of questions connected to health care. Questions focused mainly on satisfaction with health care in the Czech Republic, evaluation of the quality of the health care in the last year and the amount of information provided by the doctors. Respondents evaluated their own health condition and possibilities to decide the ways of their medical treatment. The last comparable research on this topic was conducted in December 2019, before the COVID-19 pandemic, which should be kept in mind when comparing results over time.
With health care, 58% of citizens are satisfied, 10% are dissatisfied and 31% are neither satisfied nor dissatisfied.
Under half (46%) of respondents believe that the quality of health care has remained the same over the past year, while 27% of respondents believe it has worsened and 22% believe it has improved.
The majority of the Czech public (81%) share the opinion that the patient should be involved in decisions about the treatment of their illness.
