“A historic budget for the public hospital”
Among all the problems we have to solve, (…) the hospital is at the top of the pile,” said the Prime Minister, who succeeded Elisabeth Borne on Tuesday, after visiting with the new Minister of Labor, of Health and Solidarity, Catherine Vautrin, the Dijon university hospital center.
“We will continue to invest massively in the hospital and more broadly in our health system. In the next five years, an additional 32 billion will be invested in our health system,” he told the press.
“The next budget that my government will have to present will be a historic budget for the public hospital,” he added, promising the “continuation of a massive investment for the hospital”.
“Decades of underinvestment”
“I say it, our hospital and our caregivers are a national treasure. We are incredibly lucky in France to have a supportive health system, a public hospital, caregivers who get up every morning with this vocation to welcome the French, to care for them and to serve their country,” he said. -he says.
“We are making up for decades of underinvestment and obviously it takes several years for this to be felt by the caregiver, the doctor who is here, in the hospital,” underlined the Prime Minister.
“We will also continue to transform the financing of our hospital” so that it is “financed in a more intelligent way,” he added. He also mentioned “the issue of coordination with city (medicine), obviously, to also reduce the pressure weighing on the hospital”.
By choosing the emergencies of Dijon University Hospital for her first field trip, Catherine Vautrin emphasized for her part that she “wanted to pay tribute to those who are mobilized to ensure this reception of emergencies at all ages of life”.
“What is interesting is a multi-departmental and multi-regional welcome. It is important to highlight these elements of complementarity between urbanity and rurality,” she added.
