In just one year, from 2021 to 2022, the number of trained nurses in Spain who worked in another country doubled; going from 572 to 1,100. But this only happened in January and February of 2023, the number had already reached 286.
Norway, Britain and Ireland are in this order the principal places. The reason is nothing but the duty of suspicion that the broker lives and has a temporality in it. Far from the 8% set as a target by the Government, temporary employment among nurses does not fall below 30% and in some regions reaches 40%. The situation that denounces the General Council is not new, and as Florentino Pérez Raya, its president, explains: “we have been working hard. the result of the temporal pontificate. In 2020, the number of Spanish nurses working outside Spain will exceed 5,400 and since then the number will not stop growing. We invest in the training of highly qualified professionals who leave to seek better conditions in other countries.
Temporality, says the Council, “is not justified in any case” and that is, indeed, another of the great things. The problem with our health system is the lack of doctors: «When in Europe there are 8.6 thousand inhabitants; in Spain barely 6.1 We occupy tail positions in relation to other regions around us. Therefore, there are not many developers, they are missing. This burden of work hurts the nurses, but let’s not forget the patients too.
Moreover, as Pérez Raya explains, “scarcely to offer a public office terms of several places and are resolved in the term itself. Currently, for example, professionals who obtained the position in 2019 were incorporated, that is, four years later.
Temporality affects not only those who have such contracts but also other professionals the patient’s health is at risk. On the other hand, nurses who live by joining contracts, often for days and even hours, see how their lives are affected and it is almost impossible to reconcile them. The omission of the contract, which is sometimes offered from one day to the next, carries with it a penalty which takes them directly to the last place in the market.
