With the medical gap becoming a reality, “patients are the alpha and omega… the general principle is to increase the number of troops, and detailed plans must be discussed.”

(Seoul = Larose.VIP) Reporter Choi Yun-seon = On the 19th, Seoul Mayor Oh Se-hoon, when the medical vacuum became a reality due to the mass resignation of residents who protested against the government’s expansion of medical school seats, said, “Patient protection comes first, conflict resolution comes later,” and “I took the Hippocratic Oath.” “Think about it,” he emphasized.

Mayor Oh posted on Facebook this afternoon, “Protecting patients first, resolving conflicts later,” saying, “Thoughts may differ. Since it is an issue involving the interests of the group, a certain degree of resistance is understandable,” but added, “I can understand some level of resistance for patients with terminal cancer.” He said, “The news that the surgery/procedure schedule is suddenly being postponed and the twin cesarean section surgery is suddenly being postponed makes us worried.”

He also pointed out, “If emergency patients are neglected, doctors will become more distant from public opinion.”

Mayor Oh said, “Remember the Hippocratic Oath (Geneva Declaration) in which you swore when you graduated from medical school, ‘I will only uphold my duty to patients,’” and added, “In the end, patients are the ‘alpha and omega’ to doctors.”

He then emphasized, “Doctors must establish and stick to the principle that they will protect patients in critical condition no matter what,” and added, “Then, amidst the collapse of local medical services, avoidance of essential medical services, and the advent of a super-aging society, we must keep open the general principle of increasing the number of doctors and work out detailed plans.” “It is reasonable to consult with the government,” he said.

Mayor Oh repeatedly said, “Patient protection first, conflict resolution later,” and explained that starting today, the Seoul Metropolitan Government will operate the Emergency Health and Medical Countermeasures Headquarters and operate public hospitals and public health centers under an emergency system.
