Of 99 general practitioners working in three medical centres in Zagreb, who were covered by a survey conducted by the Croatian Medical Chamber (HLK), as many as 47% of them say they are thinking of leaving Croatia, and 44% of them have made initial contacts in other countries within their plans to work abroad.
The findings of the survey show that 48% of those polled cite better conditions of work, higher incomes and broader opportunities for further education as reasons why they want to work abroad, the Chamber has recently reported.
According to the survey, 27% of those respondents have between 1,700-2,000 patients registered in their general practices, and 23% of them have more then 2,000 clients.
Also 70% of those respondents say they would be willing to remain working in community health centres if they are adequately remunerated for their work.
