The authors reviews a recent governmental analysis of cooperation between third-line university clinics and local and central hospitals. The hospitals are owned by the government (mainly by the counties), and the various Acts and regulation permit the central authorities to make decisions on all aspects of highly specialized medicine. The analysis concludes that a limited number of problems should be solved by decision of the central government, but only those where national concerns are involved. The counties within a health region should cooperate within a Regional Health Policy Board, to create plans for flow of patients through the health care system, specified for each field of medicine. When such plans have been approved by the Regional Health Policy Board, each county should be willing to accept them. In the event of local disagreement, the central government should decide.
