The Slovak Association of Doctors - Specialists (SLUS), one of the smaller professional organisations in the health care sector, plans to stage a protest of health care workers on the last Friday in May.

The protest will carry the slogan "Health Day for Health Care Workers" and express the message "Enough Promises, We Want to See Health Care Payments Doubled".

SLUS President Andrej Janco told the SITA newswire that workers will walk off the job, citing health reasons, to join the protest.

SLUS has said that Slovak health care system is in bad shape because of the lack of finances in the system. It pointed out that the economy is growing at a record pace, and called on the government to provide extra funds. SITA
