Medics from hospitals must work eight hours, like the European doctors

The working programme of the medics from hospitals will be European as of September 1, meaning that they will work eight hours instead of seven, from 8.00 a.m. to 17.00 p.m., with one hour lunch break. After they finish their working hours in the public system, they may go in the private system, according to a project of the Health Ministry (MS).

“The debate over this project is closed. The document has already been twice on MS site in public debate. Now we are working to details, and hopefully the normative act will become applicable on September 1. The new working schedule of eight hours is meant to render the activity in hospitals more efficient. The medics may work in the private sector after 17.00 p.m. Currently, after 13.00 p.m. you can find with difficulty the surgeons and the anesthesiologists who have surgical operations. The medics on duty alone can be found,” declared yesterday the under secretary of state Raed Arafat, quoted by Mediafax.

The under secretary of state in the Ministry of Health also said that the medics from Romania must work similarly to the doctors from Europe.
