The Czech government will spend at least two billion crowns from the government budget reserve for the financing of hospitals Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka has said, discussing the matter on a commercial TV programme on Sunday. Hospitals will lack sufficient funds due to the cancellation of a hospital fee of 100 crowns per day which patients previously had to pay. The Constitutional Court cancelled the fee last January on the grounds it was "devastating" for some population groups. The prime minister said that in 2014 his government would make use of the budget reserve, saying there were four billion crowns available in such situations.
