The letter, in which by way of gratitude to a client, the “trust” of the users in Ribera is thanked, is written with special care so as not to question the Ministry of Health “which is in charge of directing the department”. and makes a balance in which it is said that the public-private collaboration model has proven to be “viable, efficient, very sustainable and with high satisfaction rates. A model – says Ribera – that has aroused international interest, as evidenced by having received visits from more than one hundred countries.
The letters, signed on October 15 (last day of concession), have reached most of the assisted population just at the moment in which the first labor and assistance problems derived from the direct management of the Ministry of Health have transcended , such as the pressure at the emergency room door, which is also very common at different times of the year during Ribera’s tenure in the last fifteen. And when it has been revealed that the company had up to 60 doctors practicing without specialty via MIR, which now the Generalitat cannot subrogate in the same functions.
“This was Ribera’s future plan for the department of Torrevieja to keep it among the best in Spain,” announces the information indicating that an investment of 39 million euros was planned, including a second health center for Orihuela Costa included in an item of 23 million euros in infrastructure. The only primary school on the Orihuela coast is currently the most saturated of the ten in the department, next to La Loma de Torrevieja. Ribera also recalls that in this plan he contemplated an investment of one million euros in Social Action, financing that now they are going to miss, especially sports clubs, associations and NGOs in Torrevieja. Although not so much other municipalities in the department because responsible health action was almost minimal in the rest of the towns: Pilar de la Horadada, Orihuela Costa, Guardamar, Rojales, San Miguel de Salinas, Los Montesinos, Benijófar, San Fulgencio and Formentera del Segura.
Ribera, who could be planning the start-up of private sanitary facilities in the region, according to statements by one of his legal advisers, maintains in this mailbox that he has invested 117 million, 37 million more than planned in the concessionaire.
CC OO requires that the emergency physicians be fixed
The union regrets the “defenselessness” caused by Health to exclude 20 professionals from the workforce
The Health Federation of CC OO has denounced that the Generalitat “is creating uncertainty and defenselessness” among emergency physicians at the Torrevieja Hospital in the first weeks of direct management. The management, as INFORMATION advanced a week ago, has communicated to 20 of the 27 doctors in this service that they are not subrogated because they do not meet the qualification requirements to exercise their functions -specialty via MIR, according to Health regulations. Commissions emphasize that the right to subrogation prevails as stated in article 44 of the Workers’ Statute “since there is only one change of employer that in no case affects the current contracts of each of the professionals.” They have a labor contract that has not ceased with their previous employer and they appear in the list of workers that the company passed to the Ministry for transmission. In addition, the union reminds that Health must regularize their positions with their category, if according to the required qualification they cannot exercise in the current service, they must relocate them and communicate to each worker in writing the situation of modification of their working conditions. “If they consider that there are no positions, they already knew this in advance and should have mediated before the surrogacy,” he says.
