PRAGUE (MEDIAFAX) - Members on Friday approved the final reading of an amendment that removes the obligation of both parents consent to treatment of the child. Just consent of the child, and when it is not mature enough, it can also empower parents grandparents or nannies, should relieve families and physicians.

Conversely, if someone manages practice of the hospital, needs special education teacher.
