The association of private general practitioners (ZPLM) confirmed that tomorrow their doctors and nurses will protest in front of the Healthcare Ministry.

The doctors protest their greatly increased costs, which include rising electricity bills and the mandate to pay out a higher minimum wage to the nurses.

Many ministers and governments were replaced but primary care medicine remains stuck. We have much higher costs, but our reimbursement per patient remains the same, said ZPLM President, doctor Liljana Colakova – Dervisova.

It’s one of the several protests planned in the coming days due to the badly deteriorating standard of living. Protests will also include an open-ended strike by public school and kindergarten teachers, a protest by the Post Office and two days of reduced work by the entire public sector.
