JPP today accused the Madeira regional government of having “yet to pay the Covid insurance premium for all nurses and operational assistants in the regional health service”.
“This situation is unacceptable, especially since the JPP has been warning of this non-compliance since 2021,” Paulo Alves was quoted in a press release.
“It is alarming that even after our complaints, the problem persists, causing serious harm to health workers,” says the re-elected MP.
After “alleged complaints received by JPP”, Paulo Alves considers it “essential to know the criteria used to pay the wages of some at the expense of other health professionals who were also involved in the fight against the pandemic.” He noted that this “follows the commitment of the provincial government, through the provincial health minister, that all health professionals who have been directly on the front line in the fight against Covid will receive support.”
JPP also pledges to “fight tirelessly for the rights and recognition of healthcare professionals and demand responses from responsible authorities to ensure fair and equitable distribution of premiums to which these professionals are entitled.”
