The question of which medicines could be available in doctor’s offices, had Weigeldt open in an interview with the newspaper. A complete range available, don’t be anyway the goal. “We can’t and don’t want to replace the pharmacies,” said doctors ‘ representatives.

The Chairman of the health Committee in the Bundestag, Erwin Rüddel (CDU), was open to the proposal. You should not be open to new forms of Care, he said the “FAZ”. At the same time, he warned, to overwhelm the house doctors. “Medical care is not from year to year more scarce, so that I can see currently, the capacity for additional tasks at the Doctors,” said Rüddel.
