RBSS board statement re: resident employment conditions

The Board of the RBBS is aware of the conflict between the trainees and the umbrella organisation of hospitals concerning the disparity in remuneration, working conditions and the incomplete social status of trainees.

The board fully supports their claim for a uniform employment contract within all training hospitals, for a correct social status and for sufficient time allocated to education and training.

To be selected for training for whatever branch of medicine is an achievement, reflecting skills and commitment. Our young colleagues will be the key players in our future health care system. We need to take care of them. They deserve to be properly trained in the correct conditions.

 

On behalf of the RBSS board,

dr. Charles de Gheldere                        prof.dr. Dirk Ysebaert
RBSS president                                     Secretary-General
