Health: the flying team will arrive later than expected in Abitibi-Témiscamingue

The flying team of nurses who were to arrive on June 20 in Abitibi-Témiscamingue to help the health network in this region will ultimately not be able to take up their duties until next month.

According to the Abitibi-Témiscamingue Interprofessional Health Care Union, affiliated with the FIQ (FIQ-SISSAT), these reinforcements will arrive at the beginning of July in this region.

Changes in the rates of private agencies, which occurred in May, led to reductions in services and resources available in several regions of the province, particularly in Abitibi-Témiscamingue where the balance in the supply of services is very precarious, according to the union.

“Having discussed with representatives of the CISSS de l’Abitibi-Témiscamingue this Friday, we have already been told that it was postponed to 1er July,” says the president of FIQ-SISSAT, Jean-Sébastien Blais. “So we shouldn’t have any reinforcements until then.”

It is still unknown how many nurses will join the teams in this region.

“In an ideal world, we would like to have at least 75 nurses who respond to the call and who agree to come and spend the summer in Abitibi-Témiscamingue,” adds Mr. Blais. “We are missing 250 nurses to be able to offer basic care. Despite all the service closures, the pressure is still extremely high and we need this staff.”
