PM Tudose: I wish every Romanian benefits from everything he’s entitled in a hospital; it’s not charity

Prime Minister Mihai Tudose stated on Tuesday that he wants that every Romanian, who goes to hospital, benefits from everything that he or she is entitled to, for this thing is not “charity.”

The head of the Executive made these statements at the Victoria Palace, at the signing ceremony of contracts for the purchase of 14 Computed Tomography scanners (CT), 24 Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) equipment and 21 PASC information systems (medical imaging technology).

“It’s a step towards normality, it’s not an extraordinary event. I wish this things no longer be extraordinary events and every Romanian, who goes to the hospital that is nearest to his residence or finds himself/herself in trouble, benefit from everything that is entitled to. It’s not a charity. The state is compelled to do so. We are all bound – we, too, the Government, and you, the representatives of public local authorities, presidents of county councils or mayors – to make available to the people that we represent everything meaning state protection and aid and the healthcare area,” Tudose conveyed to those participating in the event.

He mentioned that “the true beneficiaries” of those systems are Romanians, adding that Romania’s three big priorities are infrastructure, education and healthcare.

Furthermore, PM Tudose congratulated Healthcare Minister Florian Bodog for the things he accomplished since holding the office.

The equipment purchased under the contracts concluded on Tuesday at Victoria Palace will be used to endow 33 hospitals in Bucharest and across the country, medical units that don’t have such equipment.

The ceremony was also attended by numerous presidents of county councils, mayors, Healthcare Minister Florian Bodog and Deputy PM Marcel Ciolacu.

 

“Public health system needs shock treatment”

 

The public health system needs a “shock treatment” that should go into the medical infrastructure, state-of-the-art equipment and the motivation of specialized staff, Premier Mihai Tudose wrote on Tuesday on his Facebook page.

“Quality medical services imply investments: in the medical infrastructure, in up-to-date equipment, in specialized staff. The public health system needs a ‘shock treatment’ delivered in at least three directions,” said Tudose.

“Consistent investments in infrastructure” are needed in order to recover what has not been done in due time in this sector. “In this respect we have in view the erection of the eight regional hospitals and the republican one, as assumed through the ruling programme,” Tudose added.

As for the state-of-the-art, performing equipment, the Premier says it is “absolutely necessary for a sharp diagnostic and efficient treatments, implicitly.”

Moreover the Premier said the medical staff needs to be motivated, a reason why, he added, in the first months of 2017 the health system’s average earnings have grown by over 35pct.

“We shall continue to raise the health system’s salaries by enforcing the new uniform pay law as of 1 January 2018. Therefore, we will stay consistent with what we have promised the Romanians at the dawn of our governing, that health care, education and infrastructure are our priorities,” Tudose stressed.

In his message, the Executive’s head reminded that the procurement contracts have been inked on Tuesday at the Victoria Palace for endowing 34 hospitals countrywide and from Bucharest with medical imaging equipment.

“The 3 contracts worth EUR 19.8 million represent an important step toward ensuring quality medical services,” Tudose concluded.
