Union leaders and representatives of the Czech Republic’s spas have demanded an immediate halt to changes in the system of spa treatment. They say the very existence of the country’s spas has been threatened by a shortening of the average length of stays and a marked reduction in payment for treatment by health insurers. Doctors have reportedly become afraid to prescribe spa care even in cases where they are still able to do so. The unions and spa owners have called for a meeting with the minister of health to address the problem.
