Landstinget, the authority responsible for public-financed health care, will cut 150 jobs in the Norrbotten region as a result of the decision to reduce the capacity of the health care services. The redundancy plan will mostly affect nurses, nursing assistants and administrative workers. A specific scheme, including preretirement, resettlement and training measures, will be implemented by Landstinget for those who will be laid-off.
