After the conducted investigation, the Protector of Citizens determined that the Ministry of Health did not act on the request of the Higher Public Prosecutor's Office in Novi Sad for two and a half years, to conduct an extraordinary external quality check of professional work of health care workers from the Institute of Oncology of Vojvodina in Sremska Kamenica.

After the Protector of Citizens launched a control investigation into the work of the Ministry of Health, that authority issued a decision on the implementation of an extraordinary inspection of professional work in the mentioned institute, but even after three months, the inspection was not carried out.

The Protector of Citizens recommended to the Ministry of Health to immediately ensure that an extraordinary external inspection into the quality of professional work of the institute's health workers is carried out, and to act in the manner and within the deadlines prescribed by law in the future.
