Over 3,000 people work in the largest military hospital in Poland. people. In this “uniform” they account for less than 3 percent.
Once again and verbally. Three. In fact, this should be enough for a comment in the context of the condition of the Military Health Service (WSZdr). But it should be added that, compared to other “military” hospitals, this is still not bad. And I would even say: it’s okay.
Every day, the head of the Ministry of National Defense boasts about the involvement of WSZdr in the fight against COVID-19. We can, for example, read more tweets of the Ministry of Defense about 14 military hospitals involved in the fight against the coronavirus. And yet often military only in name. And I’m not exaggerating. Well, there are military hospitals in which not even one soldier is employed (not on duty). Or if you prefer: a military doctor.
Minister Mariusz Błaszczak has been avoiding answers to key questions for a long time, precisely in the context of the condition of WSZdr. Minister Skurkiewicz also avoids answers. And it is worth recalling that it was he who announced the reactivation of WAM over a year ago.
Naturally, there are more questions. The Ministry is still silent on the gigantic vacancies in the Department of Military Health Service (DWSZdr) and at the same time on granting permits to leave the army for officers just over 40 years of age.
The information about the number of vacancies appeared during the session of the Senate defense committee in 2018. But what may be worrying is the fact that at the same time and to this day, the Department of Military Health Service of the Ministry of National Defense has granted and grants consent to other officers – medics to shorten service.
And if only that is why the management of the Ministry of National Defense and the Department of WSZdr faces a number of decisions. The aforementioned silence when asked questions does not help these decisions. Perhaps even silence would be the least of the problems. The propaganda of the Ministry of National Defense and the so-called medical officers. Propaganda that fails to answer even one of the questions.
Who benefits from the fact that a physician and officer educated with public money, retires at the age of 40, opens a private office, but at the same time continues to work in a military hospital as a civilian (with a military retirement pension)?
The military orchestra in white coats continues to play. More temporary hospitals are being built, theoretically organized by “military” ones, not even half-occupied. Wrong they arise. Certainly at the expense of cancer patients, chronic diseases and probably at the expense of the elderly.
In closing, let’s ask again. Together.
Who benefits from the fact that a physician and officer educated with public money, retires at the age of 40, opens a private office, but at the same time continues to work in a military hospital as a civilian (with a military retirement pension)? I am asking because the state is certainly not gaining.
