During its General Assembly in Warsaw on 26 November 2011, the CPME adopted “Declaration of CPME regarding the situation of Slovak doctors”

The Standing Committee of European Doctors representing physicians of 27 European countries is deeply shocked to hear that the President of the Slovak Republic Mr Gasparovic recommends the Slovak government to use force against the Slovak doctors in case of failure of negotiation in five days.

This step would be unprecedented in the life of European doctors and is totally unacceptable.

The General Assembly of the Standing Committee of European Doctors strongly protests against this action. We call on the decision-makers in Slovakia to use peaceful means only in the debate with the Slovak physicians and to search together for the best solution to their problems.
