Some of the Slovak doctors who handed in notices to terminate their employment contracts in protest against the policies of the Health Ministry have been offered jobs in the Czech Republic, the Sme daily wrote in its October 4 issue.

Some of the Slovak doctors who handed in notices to terminate their employment contracts in protest against the policies of the Health Ministry have been offered jobs in the Czech Republic, the Sme daily wrote in its October 4 issue.

The daily wrote that hospitals primarily on the Czech-Slovak border have placed advertisements in local newspapers, noting specifically that the hospital in the Czech town of Vsetín lacks certain experts and that it had contacted doctors from the Žilina University Hospital offering better equipment, conditions and salaries than the Slovak doctors currently receive.

More than 2,400 Slovak doctors have given notices of termination of their employment contracts in a mass action coordinated by doctors’ unions, in a protest against low salaries, poor conditions in the health-care sector, particularly in hospital wards, and the state’s plan to transform public hospitals into joint-stock companies.
