Health workers will receive a pay rise in January not at the same time as other state employees at the start of November, says Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka. In an interview for Czech Television on Tuesday evening, he said this was because medics’ salaries were not financed directly from the state budget. State employees will get a 3.5 percent pay rise next month, while some – including police and fire officers – will get a second rise in January to give them a total of 5 percent more than they are now receiving.
