The ministry's officials told BNS that the vice-minister would leave her post next Monday.

The ministry said that Šakalytė, a cardiologist by profession, had decided to resume her medical career.

Šakalytė's resignation is the latest change in Health Minister Aurelijus Veryga's team and follows the departure of Deputy Health Minister Aušra Motiejūnienė-Bilotienė and her adviser Danas Bakša in December. Algirdas Šešelgis, a new deputy health minister, took office last week.
