Slovakia -Cooperation agreement in health care signed -October 23, 2012

Trade unions of doctors and nurses signed an agreement of cooperation. The common goal is to initiate systematic solutions in health care by respecting the memorandum - a document signed by the doctors’ trade union and the former government on preventing Slovak doctors from handing in their notice en masse last year. Doctors, meanwhile, support nurses in their fight for higher salaries, which has already been taken to the Constitutional Court. Both doctors and nurses criticise the lack of financial means provided to health-care facilities by health-insurance companies.
