The co-president of the inter-hospital collective Antoine Pélissolo calls in particular for the creation of jobs “Where it is needed”.
“It’s a big national effort, but all is not settled”, declared Monday, July 13 on franceinfo the psychiatrist Antoine Pélissolo, head of department at the Henri-Mondor hospital in Créteil (Val-de-Marne) and co-president of the inter-hospital collective before the signing of the agreement resulting from the Ségur de la santé, which provides for salary increases for nursing staff.
“Many say it’s not going to be enough”
“These results are obviously not negligible at all. This is an important recognition for all hospital staff ”, says Antoine Pélissolo, but “Many say that it is not going to be enough, that we are not going to gain much in attractiveness for people who wanted to quit or who would like to resume a position”.
The co-president of the Inter-hospitals collective welcomes “The staff who fought for more than a year”, and recognizes “A government response that was unparalleled until then”. “We must do everything to be better armed” to deal with events similar to the Covid-19 epidemic, warns Antoine Pélisso, who mentions “an earthquake”.
Among the issues that are not resolved, the psychiatrist cites “la question of hiring which was also put on the table, but we do not have exactly all the details ”. At the AP-HP, he estimates that several hundred people are missing. “We have to create jobs where they are needed, strengthen the teams that are often in constant tension, and open beds where necessary”, recommends Antoine Pélisso.
