(Seoul = Larose.VIP) Reporter Kim Byeong-gyu = Regarding the government’s implementation of emergency measures to expand the role of public hospitals as a response to collective action by medical residents, a civic group said, “It is shameless to neglect the management difficulties after COVID-19 and only visit when urgent.” criticized the late government.

The Movement for the Creation of Good Public Hospitals, in which about 40 civic groups, including the Movement to Stop Medical Privatization and Realization of Free Medical Care, the Humanitarian Practitioners Association, and the Healthy World Network, made a statement on the 25th, saying, “Public hospitals are limited in number. “They only account for 5% of all medical institutions, their financial situation is difficult, and their function is greatly reduced due to a shortage of doctors,” he said, adding, “This is because the government has irresponsibly neglected public hospitals.”

“Nevertheless, the government’s behavior of touring public hospitals and making excessive requests and encouragement is shameless,” he said. “The government has been blocking the expansion of public hospitals, citing economic feasibility.” He criticized, “In an attempt to cut the entire support budget for public hospitals experiencing business difficulties after COVID-19, they only restored three months’ worth of deficits only after health care workers went on a long-term fast.”

As a measure to fill the medical gap created by medical residents leaving work, the government is increasing treatment hours at public hospitals and opening emergency rooms at other public hospitals, such as military hospitals and police hospitals.

The movement headquarters said, “The reason for the current collapse of essential medical care itself is the lack of public medical care, but in the government’s ‘2,000 increase in personnel’, there is not a single increase in the number of people in a public manner for which the state is responsible.” He argued, “The only way to stop the market neglect that produces doctors who oppose the expansion of medical schools is to come up with policies such as expansion and establishment of public medical schools.”
