For another year, 131 MIR positions in the specialty Family and Community Medicine remain vacant and the reason is not a shortage of professionals. All this with the shadow of danger from countries that compete with Spain with these professionals, offering better conditions than those offered by the National Health System (SNS). This situation could cause the Ministry of Health to consider new measures to retain talent and one of them could be salary increases, which would cost more than 3,300 million if it wants to match neighboring countries.
In particular, one of the countries where most Spanish doctors end up is our neighboring region, France. Features of these offers are higher wages than in Spain, between 6,000 and 8,000 euros per month, five working days a week to work, and an average number of patients seen per day: 25 to 30 people.
According to a study done by JobTed, if we look at the average salary of a family doctor in Spain, it is around 2,360 Euros net monthly. It is true that this data may vary depending on the years of experience accumulated by the doctor in his professional career and in the autonomous community where he exercises his profession.
So, in the event that Pedro Sánchez’s government wants to equalize salaries and catch up with the French country, using a greater amount of public coffers to pay the 42,774 family doctors who make up the SNS, according to health data Will happen. , This would increase the payroll from 100,946,640 Euro/month to 342,192,000 Euro/month if they take the maximum fee proposed by the French, which would be equivalent to 3,377,435,040 million per year.
Mir Family Chowk deserted
In this sense, Familia fails to attract doctors who have just graduated from universities. At the end of the allocation of MIR posts for this year and as reported by the Ministry of Health, 131 family and community medicine posts out of 2,455 offered remain vacant, 38 more than last year. A fact that attracts more attention because on this occasion it has been the only feature that had vacancies.
Thus, in the national territory there are 22 destinations where there will be no doctors trained in this specialty and which are divided between the autonomous communities of Aragón (15), Asturias (1), Cantabria (4), Castilla y León (40) , Catalonia (8), Extremadura (16), Galicia (33) and Navarra (14).
However, this figure has fallen since the last election as the ordinary phase that ended last Sunday left 202 places vacant, but the quota for non-EU citizens and those who have changed their choice has been reduced. .
