The career of auxiliary health technician will advance in 2022, announced this Sunday the Minister of Health at a joint press conference with the Secretary of State for Parliamentary Affairs and with the Minister of Labour, Solidarity and Social Security. This was one of the demands of the Left Bloc to make the State Budget for the next year viable.

The creation of this career – which covers the current operational technical assistants – “was a priority that the Government identified and which was put off towards the end of the legislature”, but which it decided to bring forward to 2022, as was claimed in the negotiations, admitted Marta Temido . But the definition of its functional content, the transition rules and the remuneration table will be discussed with the unions.

The government official also reviewed the approaches to the demands of leftist parties, which are reflected in other measures to strengthen the NHS already advanced at the end of the Council of Ministers, on Friday, namely the return of autonomy for hiring and the dedication regime full that will start with the doctors, in “two strands” – the voluntary, which covers all those who want to join, who will have to sign a letter of commitment “increased in productivity, access, efficiency”, and the mandatory, addressed only to those appointed from now on to service and departmental directors.

The latter will not be able to accumulate positions of technical direction, coordination and leadership in the private and social sectors and a maximum number of working hours will be defined that they can exercise in other health institutions and the salary increase, in a manner to be negotiated with the union structures.

These measures, explained Marta Temido, “have behind a set of political choices related to the materialization of the new statute of the NHS”, which was approved on Friday. Ensuring that “it is not intended to remove autonomy for hiring doctors”, the minister said again that they continue to be recruited in the two annual competitions.

Contrary to criticism, he reaffirmed that the budget proposal is ambitious and repeated that budget allocations for the NHS increased by 3252 million euros between 2015 and 2022. “This is clearly a reinforcement budget”, he stressed, recalling that the progressive elimination of user fees will reach the last stage next year, at which time these fees will only continue to be charged in emergency services.
