Thousands of Czech hospital doctors agreed on Wednesday to take back their resignations and accept a wage offer from the government, ending a threat of a crisis in acute care. A lobby group of about 3,800 hospital doctors, about a fifth of the country’s total, ended their threat to resign as of March 1 after the Health Ministry promised to raise monthly pay by CZK 5,000-8,000. The government is planning reforms of the health system as well as pensions and taxes in order to balance the budget by 2016.
