Unions representing doctors and nurses are calling for a nationwide strike on Sunday, September 15, to demand higher salaries and better working conditions. Should the ongoing negotiations between the unions and the Health Ministry fail, the unions will proceed with a 24-hour strike throughout the country on Sunday.
Disruptions to healthcare services, including longer wait times and canceled appointments, are possible nationwide if the strike takes place.
Individuals in Croatia, and especially Zagreb, are advised to confirm doctor's appointments, to anticipate longer waiting times in medical facilities for the duration of the strike, and to avoid any potential protests.
