Latvian health minister says wages might grow for all emergency medics

 

Wages might be risen not only for childbirth specialists and midwives, but also for medics ensuring emergency medical services in hospitals, said Latvian Health Minister Anda Caksa after her meeting with Prime Minister Maris Kucinskis (Greens/Farmers) today.

Caksa and Kucinskis agreed that additional financing for increasing wages of childbirth specialists and other medics who provide emergency medical services so far will be found within the sector, but later the government will decide how to compensate that.

Kucinskis told the press that an agreement has been reached that financing will be increased to those hospitals that ensure emergency services 24 hours a day, including childbirths.
