President Klaus signs three new bills
President Vaclav Klaus has signed three new bills into law, relating to health care, health insurance and social benefits. The bill relating to health care will modify the requirement that physicians, dentists and pharmacists must have a clean criminal record. Doctors and medical staff will be allowed to seek work in their given field if their transgression is not related to their profession, for instance if they were found guilty of causing a traffic accident. The second bill, concerning health insurance, should help mainly diabetic patients, since it will give them the right to more free medical equipment needed for daily care.
