French Health Minister promises a new plan to support hospitals for the summer

PARIS, May 17 (Reuters) – French Health Minister Olivier Véran said Sunday that he wanted to present a new plan for the summer to support French hospitals and health workers who have been at the forefront of the fight against the coronavirus pandemic.

In an interview with the French Sunday weekly Le Journal Du Dimanche (JDD), Véran said that consultations with social partners and health representatives would start from May 25.

“I want to go fast. I want the plan to be presented this summer, to include everything that can be presented in the next Social Security budget,” he said.

The new plan would increase healthcare workers’ wages beyond recent bonuses awarded during the coronavirus crisis, the minister said.

“The country will have to make a great effort to recognize its role,” he said.

The plan will also involve a reorganization of investments and will create a more flexible framework for the working day.

“If hospital personnel want to work more and increase their wages, it should be possible. To do this, we must review the organization of the working day in hospitals,” Véran said.
