The Navarra Health Platform warns that eliminating the exclusivity of doctors would be a way to privatize

He believes that in order to deal with this claim it is necessary to consolidate the current staff and that the patients are cared for by the same doctors or nurses.

The Navarra Health Platform, which brings together different groups, unions, professionals and users in defense of quality public and universal healthcare, has alerted the demand of the Medical Union (SMN) to eliminate the exclusivity of the exercise of their profession in the public system.

It has been in a concentration, seconded by several hundred peoplebefore the headquarters of the Department of Health, where they have displayed several banners with slogans supporting exclusivity and rejection of privatization in health.

They have also read a statement, in which they have shown their “strongly disagree” with the proposal of the Medical Union of Navarra (SMN), on strike to demand this and other wage claims, to request the elimination of exclusivity, but they have also criticized “the response” of the Government of Navarra.

They understand that “eliminating exclusivity is one more way to privatize the public health system, to deteriorate it and expose it to irregular practices of plundering public resources such as tests, work time or referrals to the private one”, they have said to lament the “lack of vision” of the managers of the Department of Health.

Thus, the platform considers that the regional government “seems not to see the solutions that the situation demands. The workforce needs to be consolidated, so that each patient can see their own doctor or nurse every time they are treated. They need decent working conditions that prevent the flight of health personnel”, they have analyzed to emphasize that this requires increasing the budget of the health system, especially Primary Care”.

With all this, they have shown their gratitude for “the commitment of defend the public health system“To the citizens, to the Health workers, to the Town Halls that supported a motion of the platform in this line, to the unions and to the parliamentary groups that are committed to a new Foral Health Law.
