A meeting on Thursday night between the leader of the LOZ hospital doctors' union, Marián Kollár, and Speaker of Parliament Pavol Hrušovský (Christian Democratic Movement (KDH)), over the continuing protest by doctors which has seen hundreds quit their jobs, failed to produce an agreement, Kollár said after the talks. Both parties said that they will continue their dialogue on Friday, December 2.
"No deal has been reached yet. A little more patience is required," Kollár said, as reported by the TASR newswire. "We're looking at all options to arrive at an agreement as soon as possible." Friday's meeting will be held between Kollár and Hrušovský alone, as the KDH, which under the governing coalition agreement has the Health Ministry within its remit, thinks the chances of reaching an agreement are better with Hrušovský and Kollár talking one-on-one.
