Commenting article: Doctors Union: Bulgaria Govt Dooms Health System to Death

The professional organization of doctors in Bulgaria has come out in support to hematologists who have decided to quit en masse over their meager salaries.

According to the Bulgarian Medical Association, such large-scale outflows are to be expected in the near future in other areas of medicine in Bulgaria, given dismal government policies in the area.

Blood transfusion professionals from Varna and Stara Zagora are right to protest their payment and seek more worthy work conditions elsewhere, according to a statement published by the Association Tuesday.

It is the governments responsibility to look after its people, let not politicians forget that they are servants of the people. Health care is the public's right and should maybe rank higher that national security as this is not an area that Bulgaria might affect the outcome of due to its small military. EVERYONE will be sick at some time and require medical attention, when was the last time the military were called upon to defend the country. All I am saying is that the government should look at its priorities and get them right.
