Part of the discrepancy is due to the counting of minimum services. This newspaper was sampled on the first day of strike last week, on Monday, according to which 80% of workers could go on strike in the health centers and 50% were in hospitals.
All the public health sector (75,000 employees) is called a strike that has managed, for the first time, to agree to the six unions sector table, so Class (CCOO, UGT, CSIT-UP) as professionals (SATs, nursing; Amyts, doctors, and Usae, nursing assistants). Minimum services equivalent to those of a Sunday or holiday, but as dialysis units, oncology, palliative, emergency or fully functioning transplants. Health stresses that, as time goes, they are meeting the minimum service. The second week of action in the sector began yesterday with the first day of an indefinite strike called by the Association of Specialists Optional Madrid (AFEM), which continues today until Thursday, as last week.
The day is marked by rallies and protests, like a chocolate first thing in the morning at the gates of the hospital on October 12, which involved a hundred workers, who have sung carols with lyrics in defense of health public. In addition, a group of about 300 doctors has read the Hippocratic Oath, which are made when the degree.

SATs Secretary General, José Manuel Freire Efe said they did not expect such a response of workers, who plays as "a reflection of the malaise and discontent" for the steps he has put "on the table" counseling. According Amyts, support "being even stronger than in the strike last week by an outright refusal of the Government of Madrid to negotiate," Efe said his spokesman Pablo Martinez.
According to Amyts, "the government has radicalized and in his recent remarks, both the advisor, Javier Fernández-Lasquetty as regional president, Ignacio Gonzalez expressed his contempt for workers and their refusal to listen, which is creating a climate of tension. " Both leaders are accused of lying to the strikers and reiterating that they will not back down and that the only negotiable is how it will implement the reform. In the same vein, the spokesman of Health of CCOO, Rosa Square, has said that "counseling is showing a stubbornness and injustice that is taking massive response", with the same track last week and even in some centers more in others.

Currently are mixed management utilities: all activity depends not health companies that charge an annual fee of regional government, while the medical staff puts the Administration. The Community of Madrid has announced that public companies dissolve Infanta Leonor Hospital (Vallecas), Infanta Sofia (San Sebastian de los Reyes), Infanta Cristina (Parla), Hospital del Henares (Coslada), Southeast (Arganda) and the Tagus (Aranjuez), and competition will bring health management, which means that doctors and nurses will be hired by companies.
While private management is no longer a novelty in the region's hospitals Valdemoro, King Juan Carlos of Mostoles and Torrejón de Ardoz are administrative concessions-the plan's Ignacio Gonzalez also introduces for the first time in primary care. According to their plans, 27 of the 270 health centers "outsource" his administration will bring competition to award it to professional societies or grouped in companies. The object of the action is, according to the Community, the savings. The privately run, they argue, is more efficient..
