almost half of nurses and social and health care assistants are employed on a part-time basis. It must be new right change.
Both red and blue politicians have long wanted to get more nursing staff in the country's hospitals and in psychiatry.
Now, all five regions offer a right of involuntarily part-timers to go full-time.
this was stated by The Danish Regions in a press release.
the Lease can be taken into use from 2020 and will apply to all nurses and health care assistants-assistants.
In practice, it comes to mean that if a nurse wants full time, can he or she go for his head, which is thus obliged to give him a full-time position.
- We have in the regions, challenges with recruiting enough qualified staff. One of the roads to multiple hands is to get more people to go from part-time to full-time, says Stephanie Lose (V), chairman of the Danish Regions.
today is barely half of the country's 38.000 nurses on a part time basis. The same applies to 45 percent of the approximately 8000 social and health care assistants.
With the initiative translates the regions of the wishes of the so-called forståelsespapir, as the Social democrats, SF, Enhedslisten and the Radical Left, signed in the summer.
Herein, it is apparent that the government and støttepartierne will explore the introduction of a "genuine right" for public employees to go on full-time.
And the money help according to Stephanie Lose to to expand lønbudgetterne and thus give nurses and social and health care assistants this right.
Even says Danish Regions, it is about 10 percent of the nurses.
We come not to compel anyone to go full time. There must be space to take any special considerations, for example, if you have small children and would like to work fewer hours to get it all to hang together.
- We would just like to give those who go out there and have a desire to work more hours - the opportunity, says Stephanie Lose.
it's going to make any difference in practice, however, is yet to be seen. Several studies show that there are very few nurses who want to go up in time.
One of the reasons that the DR P4 Sjælland, among other things, refers to Wednesday is that the work pressure is too large.
And Stephanie Lose recognises that more needs to be done to solve the problems.
- It is clear that if we do not find the hands, so it does not help.
- But it is a start to ensure that some of the places that have the most busy, will be able to get more hands on departments in day to day life, she says.
