The price increases for health establishments, which will come into force in March, will therefore include the cost of this measure, which the Prime Minister did not specify.
Claim of several unions
The head of government thus responds to a demand from several unions in the sector, which had been concerned since the fall of a possible “Leak” practitioners to the public hospital, which the “Ségur” would have made more attractive to them. In February, these organizations estimated that “Equal treatment” they would claim to represent “An envelope of 100 million euros per year”.
