Traveling in the Nièvre, Jean Castex announced on Tuesday that salaried doctors in non-profit private hospitals would see their salaries revalued "in the days to come".
These professionals had hitherto remained on the fringes of the “Ségur de la santé”.
"As part of the 2021 pricing campaign which will be launched in the coming days, we will upgrade the doctors who perform their duties in non-profit health establishments", declared the Prime Minister during a trip to the Cosne-Cours-sur-Loire hospital.
The fear of a flight to the public
The price increases for health establishments, which will come into force in March, will therefore include the cost of this measure, which Jean Castex did not specify.
The head of government thus responds to a demand from several trade unions in the sector, which had been worried since the fall of a possible "flight" of practitioners to the public hospital, which "Ségur" would have made more attractive to them.
In February, these organizations estimated that the “equal treatment” they demand would represent “an envelope of 100 million euros per year”.
