There are 1.5 million health services that could be missed due to the 24-hour national strike of doctors, health managers and nurses called for tomorrow, December 5. This is estimated by the hospital doctors' union Anaao Assomed, specifying that all services are at risk, including laboratory tests, surgeries (about 30 thousand scheduled ones that could be postponed), specialist visits (180 thousand) and X-ray examinations (50 thousand). In any case, emergency services will be guaranteed.
The strike, proclaimed by Anaao Assomed and Cimo-Fesmed, and for the sector by the Nursing Up union, begins at 00.00 on December 5 and will involve 50% of the unionized. There are at least 5 reasons for the protest: recruitment of staff, tax relief of part of the salary, adequate resources for the renewal of the employment contract, decriminalization of the medical act, cancellation of pension rights.
On the occasion of the strike, demonstrations will take place throughout Italy. The leaders of the associations will participate in the Sit-in scheduled in Rome in Piazza SS Apostoli at 11.30 am.
