Deputy Health Minister Ya’acov Litzman, who has for a long period had strained relations with Israel Medical Association chairman Dr. Leonid Eidelman, met with him in his office on Tuesday to discuss the potential upheaval in the health system if 732 medical residents and specialists follow through next week on their signed resignations.

The doctors are protesting the nine-year labor agreement signed by the IMA and the employers (including the Treasury and Health Ministry) at the end of August.

Litzman and Eidelman agreed to cooperate "out of an obligation to the welfare of patients and to promote the advancement of the health system."
