Estonia - Hospital staff hope 85 lay-offs were announced by mistake - December 31, 2015

Staff of the Tartu University Hospital contacted the social ministry over an announcement that 85 workers would be laid off, saying this must be a mistake. One Tartu council member said the cuts are so unrealistic, they are sure it must be human error. The hospital is currently understaffed as it is, and is opening a new wing with 100 in-patient beds. In a response, the Social Minister said the cuts were decided at the higher government level and that hospitals would have to propose solutions to increase efficiency.
