Emmanuel Macron and Brigitte Bourguignon, Minister of Health, will travel to Cherbourg this Tuesday for a trip "to access urgent and unscheduled medical care", the Elysee announced on Monday.
According to a press release, the Head of State will discuss access to care during this trip, "both in hospital emergencies as well as in city medicine".
He will meet all the health players in the same area of the life (emergency doctors, nurses, general physicians, hospital and ARS managers) who have "implemented a system of work and coordination between city and hospital" to "guarantee immediate and unscheduled treatment".
The Elysee adds that "We must do more through structural and deep collective work by identifying the conditions for success in a recruitment plan and retention plan in every sector".
Prime Minister Elisabeth Borne stated Friday that health is one of three "emergencies" the government must address, along with climate change and purchasing power. .
Elisabeth Borne was confronted by the shortage in hospital staff. She assured that at the conclusion of the meeting she had asked the ministers to "make very quick proposals to take effective steps for the summer".
According to a list compiled by Samu-Urgences de France, 120 emergency services in France have had to reduce their activities or are preparing to do so, due to a shortage of caregivers.
