Parisian doctors banded together to raise the cost of seeing patients KXan 36 Daily News

Photos of the demonstration are posted on Twitter (the social network is blocked in the Russian Federation) by the Federation of French Physicians (FMF), the French Union of Private Physicians (UFML), the Union of Private Physicians (SML) and the Young Doctors (Jeunes Medecins).

It is reported that a column of protesters is heading to the building of the French Ministry of Health. There, the representatives of the unions intend to hold talks to meet the demands of the protesters.

According to information on the French national health insurance website, an appointment with a general practitioner costs 25 euros for patients. Defenders of the rights of doctors claim that taxes and fees “eat” a good half of the check, and the doctor receives a modest 9 euros. As a result, specialists find themselves in financial difficulties, and young doctors can barely make ends meet. To solve the problem, the unions demand that the basic rate be multiplied by two, increasing it to 50 euros. The organizations believe that the measure will allow France to approach the average indicators of the EU countries.

However, the French authorities are not so willing to meet with doctors. On Thursday, January 4, the head of the country’s Ministry of Health, François Bron, assured doctors on the air of the France-2 television channel that the department would increase the cost of consulting therapists. At the same time, he clarified that the 50-euro mark will definitely not be reached.

On January 6, French leader Emmanuel Macron intends to address health workers. He should announce new state support measures for health professionals and comment on current problems in the industry.
