Ségur de la santé: the emergency physician Patrick Pelloux denounces the “shenanigans of the unions”, “a world from before and worse”

“We were promised a new world, we have the impression that it is the world of the past”, denounced the emergency worker on franceinfo after the agreement reached by the unions and the government during the “Ségur de la santé”.

An agreement between hospital unions and the government was reached at the end of the negotiations, known as “Ségur de la santé”. The agreement provides in particular 7.5 billion euros to revalue the salaries of caregivers. “There, I assure you, it hurts morale to see that it’s always the same people who for 30 years have been signing the agreements and doing something backwards. We were promised a new world, we were promised a modernity, a ‘whatever the cost’, and then we find ourselves with the world from before and worse ”, lamented Monday, July 13 on franceinfo Patrick Pelloux, president of the Association of Emergency Physicians of France.

The emergency physician denounces “corridor negotiations”

“Regarding emergencies, there is no progress. Nothing modern is happening. We were promised a new world, we have the impression that it is the world of the past which is being institutionalized for years. There is nothing on guard, there is nothing on the permanence of care, there is nothing on the valuation of additional time, that is to say overtime. There, in Ségur, there is no moratorium. We will continue to close hospitals and that, I really find that it is not right what they are doing ”, added the emergency physician. “We feel like everyone who got involved and got the job done during the coronavirus crisis, medical resuscitators, anesthesiologists, emergency physicians, are being left behind in this deal. We have made a lot of proposals to modernize the hospital, modernize its democracy, modernize its governance and there is nothing at all ”, also declared Patrick Pelloux who denounces the “Union shenanigans” : “I applaud the unions which have succeeded in making shenanigans behind the backs of others and which have managed to work out. It is the France of the clans, it is the France of the potentates, it is France which makes people believe that it is a majority agreement when it is not. These are hallway negotiations. ”
