Prime Minister Han Deok-soo announces public statement on collective action

(Seoul = Larose.VIP) Reporter Kim Young-shin = The government will hold a meeting of relevant ministries on the 19th to discuss response plans to the warning of collective action by doctors who opposed the expansion of medical school seats.

The Prime Minister’s Office reported that Prime Minister Han Deok-soo will preside over the ‘Meeting of Relevant Ministers in Response to Collective Action by Doctors’ at the Seoul Government Complex at 9 a.m.

At a meeting chaired by Prime Minister Han on this day, the situation of collective action in the medical field will be identified and measures such as preventing patient inconvenience will be discussed.

We will also review plans to implement the ‘four essential medical policies’ without a hitch, including expanding medical personnel, strengthening local medical care, alleviating the burden of medical accidents, and expanding essential medical fees.

Currently, the Ministry of Health and Welfare is operating a central accident management headquarters related to group action by doctors.

Doctors’ groups are predicting collective action against the expansion of medical schools, raising concerns about confusion in the medical field.

Previously, the Korean Medical Association (KMA) decided to join the fight through an emergency response committee meeting on the 17th.

A series of resignations from medical residents, including interns and residents, are also expected. All residents at the so-called ‘Big 5’ hospitals, including Seoul National University, Severance, Samsung Seoul, Seoul Asan, and Seoul St. Mary’s, submitted their resignations by this day and decided to stop working from 6 a.m. on the 20th.

Prime Minister Han said in a public address the previous day, “If a medical gap is created due to collective action by doctors, the damage will fall squarely on the people,” and urged restraint, saying, “It is something that cannot happen, taking the lives and health of the people hostage.”

However, right after Prime Minister Han’s statement, the Medical Association strongly protested, saying, “This is nothing more than a justification for suppressing and punishing the autonomous actions of doctors,” and “If the government punishes actions based on the free will of medical students and residents, we will face a medical catastrophe.” did.
