Bulgaria - Protest of health care practitioners continues - April 30, 2016

Protest of health care general practitioners (GPs) grows further as ten more regions will join in it. The protest began when GPs from four regions closed their surgeries. It spread the days after, with respectively five and nine other regions joining. The protest is foreseen to spread gradually until it encompasses the entire territory of the country. A meeting between the leadership of the Association of general practitioners and the health ministry did not yield any results, with the GPs saying that they will not back down from their demands and the protest will continue. They have assured that one medical crew in each practice will remain on duty in order to take care of patients in need of acute medical help. GPs are discontent with the policies and reforms proposed by the government, especially those concerning the outside hospital healthcare.
