Galbiate GP suspended for not wanting covid vaccination: Ats determines the assistance service is still running thanks to the work of other doctors already responsible for colleague replacement. “With regard to Ats Brianza’s decision, which has taken note of the Physician Union’s order to suspend the practice of a general practitioner operating in the Galbiate District, it is necessary to specify that the Primary Care Department has immediately proceeded to identify with the other members of the group medicine, in which the suspended physician is involved, ways to ensure Continuing assistance to physician patients involved in the procedure” — reads a press release issued this Thursday afternoon, August 26th about the Health Protection Agency which also includes Lecco County.
“No” to a vaccine: two doctors suspended from ATS Brianza
So there is no interruption in the important medical assistance service in the area. “Specifically – the Ats Brianza Communications Office also notes – we remind you that patients can, as usual and as required by law, call the Collective Medicine Secretariat on 0341 240637, for any need (issue of repeat prescriptions, telephone consultation with the doctor, access to the outpatient clinic) or home visit) In this regard, Ats Brianza takes the opportunity to thank the group of doctors who help the patients of the suspended doctor, ensuring activity even in the municipal village. It is worth noting that Ats works in close contact not only with the doctors but also with the county commissioner.”
Contact channels for information
In order to ensure the best service and information dissemination, the usual channels of communication for citizens are available (Urp Ats: [email protected]). “Continuity of care, in this and in various other cases of absence of the GP, is ensured by using all available tools: group physicians (a circumstance expressly provided by legislation for the physician in the group), temporary appointment, replacement of the physician. In this scenario, the use of continuity of assistance is not envisaged ( Ats did not provide indications to this effect), except when the service is active.”
There are more than 200 instruments to check non-compliance with the obligation that Ats Brianza has sent to health workers and related professional associations. In recent days, a nurse from the “Airoldi e Muzzi” institute in Lecco has been reached through suspension, due to a lack of commitment and not excluded.
