Health Minister Svatopluk Němeček has said he will not reconsider his decision to sack the head of the psychiatric hospital in the town of Dobřany, despite the fact that the hospital staff have stood up for him and are ready to go on strike alert in his defence. The health minister sacked Vladislav Žižka last week after the hospital released one of its patients without waiting for a second opinion from a specialist. The man killed a young woman within 24 hours of being released. This is the second time such an incident has happened in the last seven months.
