“Our health system is sick, our health system is suffering, it must be recognized,” he said during the first session of questions to the Borne 2 government in the National Assembly.

Questioned by the deputy (PS) of Finistère Mélanie Thomin in particular on the “insufficient” proposals of his “flash mission” carried out just before his appointment to the ministry, Mr. Braun admitted that it was “not about solutions that will solve all the problems” and denied any desire to “close the emergency services (or) prevent our fellow citizens from accessing them”.

“It’s totally false. Our fellow citizens will not find the door closed, they will always find a carer to take care of them and redirect them”, assured this professional emergency doctor.

Despite the tensions, “vital emergencies will always be ensured at any point in the territory”, insisted the minister again in response to the deputy (Horizons) of Calvados Jérémie Patrier-Leitus, who pointed to several cases of night closures in his department. .

“My mission is to allow each French person to be taken care of in an adequate way”, which “does not necessarily mean in an emergency service”, underlined Mr. Braun.
