  • Description

    Three-thousand hospital workers and doctors marched through Rome today (21 January) in protest against the reorganisation of the Italian hospital system. Doctors went on strike for three hours and hospital workers for twenty-four hours to back up their protest.

    The strike action reduced hospitals in Rome and the surrounding Lazio region to operating emergency services only.

    Strikers fear that the hospital system reorganisation will jeopardise their job security, invalidating agreements signed before the hospitals were regionalised on January 1.

    The strike comes at a time when the Italian hospital system is in severe crisis, with many infirmaries having to restrict admissions because of lack of funds. Regionalisation was intended by the authorities to make hospital financing more equitable.
