National specialised medical care
According to Swedish law national specialised medical care can be performed at a maximum of five healthcare units in the country. They are required to meet criteria to provide competence, availability and to work in multidisciplinary teams in order to provide the best possible care to the patient.
National specialised medical care is specified and decided on according to a process that accompanied this law:
- treatments in need of concentration are nominated by healthcare professionals.
- the National Board of Health and Welfare decides what types of treatments should be designated as national specialised medical services and at how many care units the treatments should be provided.
- a board of politicians from each of the six county councils decides where the treatments should be provided. The chairman is the director general of the National Board of Health and Welfare.
