Bulgaria PM Reassures Doctors over Temporary Wage Cut
Bulgaria PM Boyko Borisov has reassured Bulgarian doctors that the ceiling on their wages will only be a temporary anti-crisis measure.
Borisov, speaking to the Bulgarian Medical Association at their annual Council meeting, said that when his government manages to “stop the leaks” and to cope with the losses from energy projects such as Belene NPP and Tsankov Kamak doctors wages will be increased ryhthmically.
He said that the ceiling of BGN 3500 placed on doctors wages would only be temporary and that when the crisis is over the best doctors will “again be able to receive BGN 50 000 monthly”.
Bulgaria Health Minister Bozhidar Nanev said that essential reform is needed in outpatient care and added that the government is considering making patients pay partially for appointments with specialists if they want to be seen urgently.
The Bulgarian Medical Association was set to decide Saturday whether or not to take strike action over government health reforms and a reduction of pay, however Chair Tsvetan Raychinov said no decision has been taken yet.

" 300 leva is about 6 months work for me at present. I'm merely a company director designing and making genuinely self-sustaining energy systems - btw, these are inherently domestic."
Why do you keep doing it when you can clearly see that the demand is not there? People don't want to buy your crap. You have no customers. Try to find something to sell that people actually want to buy. Why do you keep doing the same thing over and over expecting a different result? Only crazy people do this. Are you mentally challenged or something?
Listen. I believe in paying people and that good doctors deserve a Good pay, but 50k leva a month ?! - is this a joke ? this is 10 very decent little houses per year ? So how far does my 300 leva insurance go on that !. 300 leva is about 6 months work for me at present. I'm merely a company director designing and making genuinely self-sustaining energy systems - btw, these are inherently domestic. I am as vital as a doctor in this, but of course I am not paid by the state - only maybe in my dreams !.
