Adalberto Campos Fernandes accompanies the President of the Republic in the idea that Portugal cannot undo its lack of confidence. Thinking about the National Health Service, the former minister in Antonio Costa’s first government stated that, even from a health point of view, this is, in fact, a step backwards that must be avoided at all costs.
“We cannot go back, and no turning back means the country needs to remain open, remain active, until the NHS stops being hostage to a response that must be reconsidered today,” notes the former government official, who argues: “It is essential that Family doctors are back to receive citizens, and NHS hospitals to return to work in normal conditions.”
For this to happen, the former Minister of Health advocates, it is essential that hospitals are able to restore their normal activity and that the pillar of vaccination being “well-implemented” is streamlined.
Adalberto Campos Fernandes wants to reinforce the idea that vaccines are “safe and effective”, as well as ensure that normalcy is restored.
Also in the conference TSF / DN On sustainability in health, Diogo Serra Lopez, Secretary of State for Health, however, defended that the idea that it “appears to have passed must be strongly opposed”.
“Obviously this battle has not been won yet, I’ve heard a lot of ideas that seem to have passed and I think that idea, very frankly, should be fought aggressively,” he said.
