The Government has not let go of the sixth package of anti-crisis measures to announce an ‘enhanced active retirement’ with which it intends to strengthen the National Health System, more specifically Primary Care. This was announced by President Pedro Sánchez in the round after the Council of Ministers to balance the year.
In his appearance to present the ‘Government of Spain Accountability Report’, in which he has taken stock of the measures adopted by the Executive throughout 2022, he explained that this measure will allow health professionals from Primary Care, such as family doctors or paediatricians, of retirement age “can continue for the next 3 years making 75% of their pension compatible with full-time or part-time active service”.
Sánchez stressed that it is “a pioneering project” incorporated by the Government “to reinforce the National Health System and in particular those pillars that have been much weaker over the years, such as Primary Care”.
The President of the Government began his speech by recalling that this Tuesday marks 2 years “since the famous image in Guadalajara where Araceli Hidalgo received the first vaccine in Spain and later the entire success story that the vaccination strategy that the vaccination strategy has brought us has made it possible to constantly and progressively overcome the Covid-19 pandemic”.
