(Most) GPs and hospital doctors are on strike over the Christmas/New Year period. If you need a doctor, you’re advised to ring the surgery number and find out where to get help. If all else fails, ring SAMU (15).

And now, the raging debate will trigger mass strikes in protest against planned reforms. Thousands of GPs and specialists oppose changes modelled on those in Britain which, they say, will turn the independent French medical profession into servants of the state bureaucracy.

State bureacracy in France ?????? Perish the thought :-j

This is all connected with the link I posted in this topic :

Not our doctor, when asked he said he doesn't believe in striking.

Mine neither. I have an appointment with her this afternoon. I'm sure it's a well researched article in The Independent, though. :|

The ER doctors have stopped their strike after the compromise reached with the Elf Minister.

It's a she, a millionairess like all committed socialist ministers :lol: . They actually reached an outline agreement yesterday, approved today, for paying overtime to ER doctors. "Agreement to pay" doesn't mean that the medics will receive so much as a cent...
