OGBL concerned by privatization in healthcare

The OGBL union is alarmed. According to its representatives, privatization in health care may undermine an already damaged system.

In particular, the OGBL is dissatisfied with the number of private doctor's offices being opened, equipped with important machines, such as MRIs. These centers can be converted into mini-hospitals if they wish.

Another important problem is that doctors are lured to such clinics. They are promised higher salaries there, as well as an exemption from night duty. These are certainly attractive conditions. However, the shortage of personnel, which is already quite noticeable, is becoming even more severe.

As an example, the OGBL cites the experience of neighboring countries, where the mass transfer of doctors to private clinics has led to the shutdown of state hospitals. Consequently, people have been deprived of the opportunity to receive care, especially if they do not have the money to pay for a visit.

However, business does not seem to be bothered at all.
