Question for written answer E-001967-19
to the Commission
Rule 130
Ana Miranda (Verts/ALE)

 Subject:  Situation of temporary staff in the Galician Health Service
 Answer in writing 

In recent years, poor management by the public authorities has run Galicia’s health service (the Servizo Galego de Saúde — SERGAS) steadily downhill. Currently staff are railing against the latest recruitment competition launched by Galicia’s regional government as this will not help overcome systemic problems in the health service: excessive reliance on temporary staff, no possibility of a good work-life balance or studying, etc. The problem is all the more serious in that Galicia has an ageing population whose need for a good quality health service and patient-nurse ratios that are closer to the EU average is ever more acute.

1. Is the Commission aware of this state of affairs?

2. Can the Commission take steps to help protect the rights of nursing staff?

3. Can the Commission urge the Galician executive to call a halt generally to the job insecurity that will result from its recruitment competition?
