German hospitals send head hunters to Prague

25-11-2011

German hospitals are holding a job fair in Prague on Friday and Saturday, offering qualified Czech doctors significantly higher salaries and better work conditions than they can hope to get in the Czech Republic. The fair comes at a time when many Czech doctors are disappointed by the fact that the health ministry has cut back on a promised pay rise next year as a result of slower growth and further cost-cutting measures. German hospitals are offering 140 jobs with pay conditions three to four times better than those in the Czech Republic.
