Even then, The possibility of withdrawing the strike on February 1 is looking closer today.,
best basic wage
As informed by the Health Department, the meeting focused on the main points considered by the strike committee. Thus, in response to them, he proposed an expression of the way of increasing the basic wages, which, in any case, should be supported in related forums like the health field table and common table, “This increase will be conditioned by a series of demands and improvements in service for citizens (waiting times, availability, training programs …)”. So far, the medical union has demanded an increase in doctors’ salaries to 500 euros per month this year and 500 euros next year.
12 minutes per patient
Similarly, the Department of Health this Thursday introduced a package of measures to reduce overload and in particular reinforce the general level of primary care, limiting minimum time per consultation and maximum number of daily visits.
Thus, with the aim of guaranteeing public attention, SAverage 12 minutes per visit and maximum 30-35 services per day will be consolidated those that are feasible in a 300-minute day and include all tasks performed by a professional (face-to-face, remote, telephone activity, home care and unexpected patients).
With regard to the revision of the exclusivity regime, Salud informed that aspects related to this supplement were evaluated yesterday, such as its legal feasibility and requirements of regulatory deadlines, the department highlighted.
one of the Gordian axes of this dialogue has been Elimination of supplements that reward the exclusive dedication of medical personnel, a historic demand of the Medical Union of Navarra and which currently maintains only three communities: Navarra, Galicia and Asturias. Health Navarro will commit to promoting with parliamentary groups the amendment of the law regulating the specific regime of personnel assigned to the health service through a bill to end the special dedication regime for all medical personnel.
this week groups of parliament have spoken In this regard and the PSN has only the support of Navara Suma, that would be enough to satisfy this law. Both Geroa Bai, as well as Podemos, IE and EH Bildu, with similar arguments, all reject the abolition of this supplement because they understand that the development of medical practice for private activity is favored to the detriment of the public network. On the other hand, PSN and NA+ say that the existence of this exclusive dedication is an element that undermines the competitiveness of public health in Navarre.
1 What is it and how many professionals does it affect? Health wants to promote a regulatory reform that allows the rule of exclusive dedication of doctors working in public networks to end. The scheme is accredited by paying around 800 euros per month, for which doctors work only for public networks. The elimination of exclusivity would open up approximately 2,300 professionals who could open private practice without reducing their salaries. Also, those doctors who are not linked to the specialty regime, about 41, will have the same salary as before, which would mean, according to health estimates, about 300,000 euros per year. This extends to psychologists as well.
2 What needs to be done to end this regime? The measure goes through the amendment of Law 11/92 which regulates the specific regime of personnel associated with the Navarre healthcare, which requires the introduction of a bill in Parliament and the support of the Chamber. Navara Suma proposed this measure on several occasions without moving forward in Parliament due to lack of support. After consulting his legal services, Salud estimates that there is time before the end of the legislature to complete the amendment as it could be considered for vote in a month and a half. The Parliament ends its activity at the end of March. Navarra Suma will give its support to this measure in the face of the rejection of EH Bildu, Geroa Bai IE and Podemos.
