Christophe Prudhomme, spokesman for the Association of Emergency Physicians of France, Sunday on Europe 1 points to the responsibility of successive governments in the crisis through which emergency services, half of which are on strike.


More than half of the emergency services are now on strike in France. 240 out of 474 spread all over the territory, precisely. People are demanding more resources and more personnel to continue their mission properly. For Christophe Prudhomme, spokesman for the association of emergency doctors in France and invited Sunday morning of Europe 1, this situation results from errors successively committed by the authorities. "This is the chronicle of a disaster announced," the doctor complains.

For him, the original mistake was made in 2002. "When we met in 2002 the Minister of Health at the time, Jean-François Mattei, we told him that if he removed the obligation of custody doctors in the city, we would have a blast of the emergency room, there were 12 million emergency room visits in 2002, we will finish this year with 23 million ", points out Christophe Prudhomme, who refuses to target a single manager. "We are facing governments that are asking us to do more with less."
