The government, through the voice of Edouard Philippe and Agnès Buzyn, presented Wednesday its emergency plan to try to end nearly eight months of crisis. The Prime Minister and the Minister of Health have announced a bonus for staff earning less than 1,900 euros and working in Ile-de-France, a budget extension of 1.5 billion euros over the next three years and a recovery part of the debt, up to 10 billion euros. "Really, it is a positive answer and that goes in the good sense", reacted on Europe 1 Frédéric Valletoux, president of the Hospital Federation of France.
"In view of the situation of exhaustion and the hospital and hospital, today, the response of the government, I find proportionate, that is to say, both on the means of everyday life, the functioning , but also on investment, through the recovery of debt, "said the one who is also mayor of Fontainebleau. "There is a clear desire to give back that oxygen that was asked for hospitals."
"Loosen the vice"
From there to think that the crisis will end, there is a step that Frédéric Valletoux refuses to cross. "I do not know how the collectives and unions will welcome the government's proposals," he admitted. "But when we take the envelope that will be given to hospitals next year, 300 million euros, the recovery of n third of the debt of hospitals, 10 billion euros, over the next three years, from next year, to put the investment back, there are the very technical and very practical levers to loosen the grip that weighed on hospital workers. "
Finally, Frédéric Valletoux also had a word for the premium of 800 euros net, perennial, offered to the lowest paid staff in Ile-de-France. "There are measures that concern the purchasing power of hospitals.We know that wages are low in the hospital and that tensions are even stronger in certain regions where the cost of living is particularly high" he said. "And so it is also the consideration of these situations."
