Praising “a new way of working”, he stressed that in addition to the State, “which will play its role in this consultation”, three other categories of actors will be “systematically associated with the work”: caregivers, elected officials “who will also have to take their responsibilities” and “the patients, of whom we must hear what they have to say to us” – to this end, a platform to collect citizen contributions “will see the light of day at the very beginning of September”.

For the time being, the minister is increasing meetings with “trade unions, doctors, paramedics, (hospital) federations” in order to “build the main themes of this consultation”.

Asked about a possible constraint on the installation of liberal doctors in medical deserts, he assured that there would be “no taboo on the subject”, while affirming that “there is no miracle solution “.

“We know that there are solutions which are operational and others which are not, they will all be on the table (and) I will take the necessary decisions”, he added.

All in coordination with the “national council for refoundation” announced by the Head of State, which will also begin in September and will be “the hat” in which “the conference of stakeholders will be integrated”, specified Mr. Brown.
