Consumer´s migration for medical services were done, when respondents (the officials of Local Offices) were asked for main and secondary targets of local inhabitants in chosen services. Results were compared with network of polyclinics and health centers and boundaries of their spheres from year 1977. At the supra-local level (comparable to the level of the former health centers) to strengthen the influence of Brno and other cities at the expense of smaller municipalities and in some cases, to the degradation of the former health centers - especially in the immediate Brno hinterland. At the microregional level (comparable to that of former polyclinics) to strengthen the position of smaller centers in the suburban hinterland of Brno.
