The Association of Urgent Physicians of France, chaired by Patrick Pelloux, decided Thursday to join the strike movements in emergencies. A movement launched six months ago by the collective Inter-Emergency.

It is the first organization of doctors to join the movement. The Association of Urgent Physicians of France (AMUF) joins the strike launched 6 months ago by the collective Inter-Emergency. The announcement was made Thursday by the president of the Association, Patrick Pelloux. The latter asked "emergency doctors to declare themselves strikers in services already on strike" while launching "an appeal to other unions (hospital doctors) to take their responsibilities."

Disagreements with the government

An announcement that comes three days after the announcement of the Minister of Health. Agnès Buzin had unveiled Monday measures to rebuild hospital emergencies. Like the future "access to care service" to regulate calls for help. An "unfeasible" proposal for the president of the AMUF, "considering the recruitment problems in Samu". Or direct admissions without emergency room for the elderly and the revised and corrected management of beds in hospitals.

A plan of 750 million euros

Total cost of this plan deployed until 2022, 750 million euros. Money "totally unsuitable" and "taken to others for Patrick Pelloux who" strongly disagrees "with the proposals put on the table by the government to get out of the crisis." This plan is useless and deleterious, it does not respond to the problems we have had for years. "

A new stage in the challenge

Present alongside Patrick Pelloux, Hugo Huon was delighted to see the movement he initiated with the collective Inter-Emergency take a new dimension. "The entrance of the doctors on strike opens us new possibilities to mark the protest." Tuesday, his group had rejected the proposals of Agnès Buzyn and voted the continuation of a movement followed by 250 services throughout France. He is now joined by the Association of Urgent Physicians of France who will join all actions planned by the collective. Like these local gatherings scheduled for September 26th.
