The study that dismantles the demagoguery of Mónica García

The Minister of Health, Monica Garciahas decided to trust his luck to achieve a place in the World Health Organization (SNS). Of course, the political horizon that awaits him in Spain is not simple. To the complex situation that the Government to which it belongs is going through for the corruption scandals that Justice investigateswe must add the manifest contempt that Junts feels towards Sanchismo and its entourage and, particularly, towards the ministers of the radical left who are part of the Executive. Once the amnesty is obtained, it does not seem likely that Puigdemont will lend his support to the approval of laws and, if it does, the norm with which García was going to make the great flag of demagoguery, the one that truncates the public-private collaborationis not among them.

As if that were not enough, an interesting study has just demolished the minister's politicized attacks on this model that, do not forget, It was endorsed by the PSOE in 1997. The authorship corresponds to the Extraordinary Chair of Sustainable and Responsible Health of the Faculty of Commerce and Tourism of the Complutense University of Madrid. It is concluded that Public hospitals managed by private operators help improve the results of public hospitals as a whole. The “parasitization” that the minister uses to try to make a career in the international organization is not such and, as if that were not enough, Hospitals managed under this model present better results than the average of directly managed public hospitals “in most of the indicators analyzed”. The sources are as diverse as the Audit Office of the Generalitat Valenciana or the waiting lists of the Ministry, especially bleeding for the direct public model.
