RIGA - In protest against the projected healthcare financing amounts in the next few years, healthcare workers will stage a protest, called "A Day without a Doctor", urging all physicians, except those working in emergency medical service, to take one-day unpaid leave before Saeima's vote on the 2020 state budget bill, as the Latvian Medical Association's President Ilze Aizsilniece informed LETA last night."A Day without a Doctor" will be one of these protests, organized to demonstrate what may happen if most physicians are not at work - which is what will happen if the healthcare financing policy does not change, stressed Aizsilniece.
