Young doctors flee the country

Published on 2 November 2010 at 13:27


“I treat people 30 hours nonstop. I want to get out”, headlines Mladá Fronta DNES. The Prague daily tells the story of an exhausted young doctor who has decided to flee for Germany. He could soon be followed by thousands of others who have threatened to leave en masse unless the government increases salaries and improves working conditions in hospitals.“This time it seems that doctors are serious about their threats – many of those who have signed up to the protest really want to quit. And they will easily find jobs in neighbouring Germany and Austria”, notes the daily.
