Health Ministry dir.-gen.: Groups of doctors quit together

The Health Ministry director-general said Sunday that, "The majority of resignations were made in groups, entire departments will go home together, in some departments almost 50 percent have quit," in response to the resignation of 702 medical interns and 32 specialist doctors.
The doctors are set to leave their jobs on Tuesday, and Health Ministry Director-General Professor Roni Gamzu told a Sunday morning press conference that it would become difficult to continue operating the departments.  He described the issue as "difficult, complex and problematic," adding, "It's very bitter fruit to taste when confronted with real concerns about hospital survival plans."
The Health Ministry appealed to the court for the resignations to be executed progressively, rather than all at once in a large group.
