Palermo, April 6 (Adnkronos) – The federations of pensioners of Cgil, Cisl and Uil will take to the streets, tomorrow, Wednesday 7 April, in Trapani, to protest against the failure to activate the technical table of Health. “After the commitment made in February by the management of Asp 9 in Trapani, we are still awaiting the convocation which in fact must lead to the activation of the technical table of Health – say the general secretaries of CGIL, CISL and UIL Trapani Filippo Cutrona, Leonardo La Piana and Eugenio Tumbarello, together with the secretaries of the Pensioners – We need to give answers to the citizens at a time when there are so many hardships. The waiting lists for visits and exams are getting longer and the management of the pandemic is experiencing various inefficiencies “. The appointment is at 10, in front of the Asp 9 headquarters in Trapani, with a restricted delegation in compliance with the restrictions for the pandemic emergency.

“The vaccination campaign for vulnerable people, over 80 and in their seventies, is proceeding too slowly and amidst inefficiencies also due to the lack of vaccines – they add – It is then necessary to discuss the enormous delays in booking visits and specialist examinations in the local structures and controls on Rsa and nursing homes that we have been soliciting for some time. Among the issues that the trade unions ask for attention to be given to “the issue linked to assistance to Covid patients, which – they point out – must be precise, punctual, efficient and effective, and the necessary strengthening of integrated home care and all healthcare in the complex, now almost paralyzed by the pandemic “.
