Health is the theme of Valérie Pécresse’s trip this Friday afternoon to Oyonnax (Ain). On the program for the presidential candidate of the Republicans, the visit of the hospital center and a meeting with the actors of health.
Three main causes
Prior to this visit, she gave an interview in the Doctor’s Daily, in which she promises to launch “three great causes” if elected.
First “mental health”, especially that of adolescents, with a “priority to de-stigmatization and research” and the creation of a “National Institute of Mental Health”.
Its two other major causes would be pediatric cancers, with, in the event of hospitalization, the creation of a leave for parents who would keep their salary, and women’s health, for which it envisages mother-child consultations and a “VAT of 2.1%” on periodic protection.
More trained doctors and a consultation at 30 euros
Candidate LR also promises to “double the number of trained caregivers” with “nearly 20,000 new doctors trained per year, by the end of the five-year term”, and repeats her idea of ”an additional year of training” for the general practitioners, “which will be practiced in nursing homes” and will concern “3,800 young doctors”.
“You no longer need a consultation, hospital care or emergency service less than 30 minutes from your home,” adds Valérie Pécresse, who plans to “halve” the average average waiting time for a medical appointment. .
“It is madness to consider it normal for the consultation to be 25 euros. I therefore wish its revaluation to 30 euros, of course without impact for the rest to be borne by the patients ”, also affirms the candidate LR for the presidential election. It is also necessary, according to her, “a revaluation of specialized medicine” and “pay more for consultations carried out in an emergency”.
Greater hospital autonomy
Denouncing “an accounting management of health for a decade which has brought our system to its knees”, she promises “a new stage of hospital autonomy” to “entrust broad responsibilities” to the doctors in charge of the department.
Finally, to make the health professions attractive, she pleads for a State-community alliance allowing “to provide concrete solutions in terms of housing, transport, crèche or even security”.
It is also necessary, according to her, to allow the takeover of RTT to “give back purchasing power to caregivers”, and to retain an aggravating circumstance in the event of aggression against health professionals.
