About a hundred doctors have demonstrated this Saturday in Madrid to ask the Madrid government to eradicate job insecurity chronically established in the health system and to allocate more and better resources to healthcare given the general lack of personnel in the templates.
Under the motto “Doctors say enough” and before the headquarters of the Madrid regional government, led by Isabel Díaz Ayuso, the toilets have expressed their fear before a health “in a coma”, which has already reached “the edge of the abyss in this pandemic”, surviving thanks to the monumental and unconditional effort of its human capital.
The protests of doctors have also been held throughout this Saturday in other cities such as Barcelona, Valencia, Burgos, Soria and Malaga.
Outbreaks in the Basque Country: cases increase in Basurto and another arises in Arrasate

Luis Aguilar, a member of the board of Doctors United for your Rights (MUD), denounces that the profession claims “a increased investment in healthcare” focused on recruiting, which would imply an improvement of the current contracts to be able to increase the so deficient workforce in hospitals, health centers and emergencies.
We feel “forgotten, reviled and ignored”, has underlined Luis Aguilar, for whom doctors are one of the “best prepared” healthcare groups, both scientifically and organizationally, but who are not being taken into account when planning healthcare.
For this reason, Águilar has continued, we ask that politicians take us into account when planning and budgeting the health system, which is currently not on the right path, and that they design budgets according to the health that all of society deserves.
