Declaration of CPME regarding the situation of Slovak DoctorsComments Off on Declaration of CPME regarding the situation of Slovak Doctors

During its General Assembly in Warsaw on 26 November 2011, the CPME adopted the

&#160“Declaration of CPME regarding the situation of Slovak doctors”

&#160The Standing Committee of European Doctors representing physicians of 27 European countries is deeply shocked to hear that the President of the Slovak Republic Mr Gasparovic recommends the Slovak government to use force against the Slovak doctors in case of failure of negotiation in five days.

&#160This step would be unprecedented in the life of European doctors and is totally unacceptable.

&#160The General Assembly of the Standing Committee of European Doctors strongly protests against this action. We call on the decision-makers in Slovakia to use peaceful means only in the debate with the Slovak physicians and to search together for the best solution to their problems.

&#160Dr Konstanty Radziwill

&#160CPME President
