Sweden must offer high-quality, timely and equitable care throughout the country. Our path to achieving this is through expanded primary care, more hospital beds and shorter queues for specialist care. We also want to introduce a national health care referral centre to increase access to care, and examine the possibilities to introduce complete or partial central government responsibility for health and medical care, to ensure access and quality.
