The National Federation of Physicians (FNAM) will maintain the strike for July 5 and 6 and does not rule out another in August, announced today the president, accusing the Ministry of Health of being “treating doctors like cookies”.

“The government has treated doctors of the SNS [National Health Service], and especially health in Portugal, with enormous lack of respect (…). We have a strike scheduled for the week [July 5 and 6] and do not exclude the possibility of doing it in the first week of August,” said the president of FNAM, Joana Bordalo e Sá.

In a press conference, in Porto, after a National Council that lasted more than five hours, FNAM accused the Ministry of Health of treating “doctors like cookies”.

“For FNAM the valorization of medical work has to be based on the base salary and not on productivity criteria. Doctors are not like cookies in a factory,” said the president.
