The President of the Chamber of Dentists Jiri Pekarek has said healthcare workers are considering a general strike in May, one month before parliamentary elections. Speaking in a TV discussion programme on Sunday, Mr Pekarek said during the industrial action many practices and surgeries would be closed and health care would be less available. Health Minister David Rath said he would not yield to the pressure of the disaffected health care employees. On Friday, thousands of health care workers staged a protest rally in Prague, demanding Health Minister Rath's dismissal.
