The Interreg NEXT Poland – Ukraine Programme is entering a new stage of implementation. Following the completion of the first call for proposals and the selection of projects from the HEALTH priority, it is now time to prepare and sign grant contracts.

The first contract, for the implementation of the project 'Look inside yourself – increasing access to specialised diagnostic imaging in the Polish-Ukrainian border area' (acronym InsideImaging), was solemnly signed on 27th March 2024 in Siedlce.

We were hosted within its walls by the St. John Paul II Mazovian Voivodeship Hospital in Siedlce Ltd. (PL) – the lead partner of the project, which will be implemented together with the Lviv Regional Clinical Diagnostic Centre (UA).

A mysterious title, but it's all about diagnostics. We are very happy to be signing this agreement today, we are very happy that these funds will go to the regional hospital

- with these words Janina Ewa Orzełowska, member of the Board of the Mazovian Voivodeship and the Programme Monitoring Committee, began the signing ceremony.

Konrad Wojnarowski, Undersecretary of State at the Ministry of Development Funds and Regional Policy signed the contract on behalf of the Managing Authority, in his welcome speech, stressed that:

We are trying to make the Programme close to the ordinary daily affairs of our neighbours, patients, residents therefore we started its implementation by preparing projects in the field of health care, the quality and accessibility of which should constantly improve both in Poland and Ukraine.

Referring to the InsideImaging project, Minister pointed out that

thanks to funding from the Interreg NEXT Programme Poland – Ukraine, the inhabitants of Mazovia, Siedlce, Siedlce District and the entire area will soon be able to benefit from the latest diagnostic technologies. 

For more than 2.3 MEUR received for this project from European Union funds, the premises of the imaging diagnostics department at the hospital in Siedlce will be modernised. New examination desks will also be created in the department, and modern IT equipment will be purchased. In addition, the hospital's equipment will be enriched with software for teleradiology and the analysis of imaging results based on artificial intelligence, as well as the computer equipment necessary for its proper operation. In turn, the hospital in Lviv will receive a scanner for magnetic resonance imaging and a call centre equipped with the necessary hardware and software. In addition, the use of modern software will also allow the hospital's archive to be transformed into a digital medical image archive for the 21st century.

Further contracts will be signed soon, and we look forward to seeing the results of the projects implemented under our Programme.
