Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin said called on Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu Tuesday morning to personally involve himself in the health system crisis and labor dispute with doctors, describing it as "a struggle over the character and future of the public health system in Israel."

The health crisis, he said, is only one part of a greater crisis in status of public sector workers, including prosecutors, teachers, social workers and police. Rivlin made the comments at the opening of a health convention in Jerusalem on Tuesday.
