Madrid, Jan 30 (EFE).- February begins with the active toilet strikes in Madrid, Catalonia and Navarra, who demand improvements in working conditions and in the care they provide to patients.
CATALONIA: The strike of the Metges de Catalunya union is still called for February 1, 2 and 3 and some 25,000 doctors from the Catalan Institute of Health (ICS) and concerted centers of the comprehensive health system for public use are called to participate ( SISCAT).
Metges de Catalunya came out stronger after the mobilization of January 25 and 26 and they are in open negotiations with the Generalitat Health Department, to which they ask for salary improvements and to reduce the overload of care work.
The Department of Health estimated the monitoring of unemployment in both days at around 26%, which led the director of the Servei Català de la Salut (CatSalut), Ramon Canal, to recognize that the call had an “important” adhesion and impact. in health centers, in addition to expressing their understanding for the “discomfort, fatigue and discontent” of the professionals.

In the case of pediatricians, they will have fifteen minutes to attend a maximum of 24 children.
And it does so when the Amyts union maintains the indefinite strike to which 4,240 Family doctors and 720 pediatricians from the 430 health centers that resumed on January 12, after the Christmas break, are called due to the failure of government negotiations regional, which sees political motivations in this strike.
The union welcomes this project “with prudence and skepticism” and has asked the regional Executive for “a budgetary effort” to attract doctors at this level of care in the region.

Putting a limit on the number of patients in Primary Care consultations, including salary improvements in on-call hours and members of services that are difficult to cover or the 35-hour day are some of the points in which the Ministry of Health has achieved an approach with the CESM CV, although the agreement remains to be closed.
