Strike of liberal doctors: the government does not want “neither to work nor to respond to our proposals”, denounces the collective “Doctors for tomorrow”

There is no will to work and respond to our proposals” on the part of the government, launches this Monday on France Bleu Béarn Bigorre Vonick Corvest, one of the spokespersons for the collective “Doctors for tomorrow”, while the strike of liberal doctors is renewed at least until January 8. This social movement, which began on December 26, 2022, was to end on January 2, but it continues because the strikers believe that they are “neither heard nor listened to” by the executive. Vonick Corvest shares the “anger and misunderstanding” of the collective in the face of the government’s lack of response to their strike.

The Minister of Health, François Braun had deplored the dates of this social movement, between Christmas and New Year, highlighting the triple epidemic which hits hospitals (flu, coronavirus and bronchiolitis). Vonick Corvest acknowledges that the moment “is terrible“, but he recalls that the negotiations carried out with the National Health Insurance Fund to dictate “time zones for practitioners” occur “from the beginning of December to March, the worst period but it is like that every five years“. This general practitioner in Bizanos (Pyrénées-Atlantiques) believes that these dates being set by the government, the executive could have postponed them. “The government has the possibility of requisitioning us, but nothing has been done“, he notes.

Not a “simple financial request”

The group calls for the offices of general practitioners to be closed until January 8 to demand the doubling of the price of consultations (from 25 to 50 euros) and better conditions of practice. This claim is not “a simple financial request“, explains Monday, January 2 on France Bleu Lorraine North Doctor Sylvain Gonzalez, doctor in Marly (Moselle) and another spokesperson for “Doctors for tomorrow”. This increase in tariffs would, according to him,to be able to hire staff and re-attract doctors to France“.”If we do not have a strong measure for the attractiveness of the profession, we see a very bleak future“, dreads Sylvain Gonzalez.
