Minister critical of announced patients' strike

Ljubljana, 6 January - Health Minister Danijel Bešič Loredan criticised on Friday what will be the first patients' strike in Slovenia, scheduled for Tuesday, just a day before doctors go on strike. He considers it impossible to immediately provide access to GPs in the current situation, but he did welcome proposals by the Union of Patient Organisations.
