On the afternoon of July 9, Pengmei News learned from the staff of the Propaganda Department of Tongxu County Committee that the funds for basic public health services, which had not been issued in the first half of 2019 by village doctors, had been fully allocated on July 9. The staff member did not mention the arrears of related funds in 2018 reflected by village doctors.
However, two village doctors told Peng Mei News that they had heard that arrears in 2018 and 2019 had been paid, but they had not checked.
Zhang, president of Dagang Lixiang Health Hospital, Tongxu County, Henan Province, told Peng Mei News that in the afternoon of September 9, basic public health funds owed to village doctors by the township in 2018 and 2019 had been put in place. Meanwhile, basic drugs and general medical fee subsidies in 2019 were also issued. According to President Zhang, the basic public health expenditure in 2018 was 40% of 55 yuan, or 22 yuan, while in 2019 it rose to 40% of 60 yuan, or 24 yuan.
According to Peng Mei News, there were 36 and 28 collective resignations of village doctors in Zhusha Town and Dagang Li Township of Tongxu County. In a document entitled Resignation Report of All Rural Doctors in Zhusha Town, which was written down as All Rural Doctors in Zhusha Town, it was said that the pressure of work is increasing, the funds allocated by superiors are increasing, the money in the hands of village doctors is becoming less and less, the wages are not paid in place, and the higher levels are withholding.
On July 9, a village doctor surnamed Li in Lixiang, Dagang, told Peng Mei News that in fact, the main complaint of village doctors was the delayed issue of basic public health service funds.
According to the doctor, according to the regulations, each filing villager has more than 20 yuan, but only 145 yuan in 2018, and no one in 2019. After being exposed by the media continuously, he heard that it had been sent on July 9, 2019, reissued the arrears in 2018, and issued in June, 2019, but he had no time to go to the bank to collect them.
The staff of a village clinic in Lixiang, Dagang, told Peng Mei News that money had been issued. In the morning, someone asked the clinic if they had changed their bank card, saying they wanted to pay for it. The doctor said that although the village is relatively large, due to the actual situation, the number of filing villagers is certainly less than the number of household registered villagers. Secondly, there are many village doctors who provide basic public health services in the village, so the funds are not much.
The doctor also said that the basic public health services were mainly for the elderly over 65 years old in the village. Four times a year, the patients with hypertension, diabetes and mental illness were followed up and reported the inspection data, and the health departments of counties and townships were cooperated to do a good job in the health care of pregnant women and children. Although the national regulation is 24 yuan per villager, the higher authorities will assess the work of village doctors and award and punishment, and eventually send out about 22.3 yuan.
Previously, the Tongxu County Peoples Government issued a circular on the resignation of 36 village doctors in Zhusha Town. The villagers reflected that in 2018, the funds for basic public health services were allocated to village doctors, with less than 10 yuan per capita, general medical fees, basic medicine subsidies, and village health room subsidies were not available and in 2019, the funds for basic public health services were allocated to village doctors. The problem of not getting a penny today. According to the investigation, in 2018, the per capita fund of essential medicine subsidy in Zhusha Town was 5.07 yuan, which met the national standard of 5 yuan; Zhusha Town Health Hospital fully allocated the general medical fee to the village clinic according to the standard, and there was no problem of no general medical fee; At present, village doctors enjoy public health service items, basic drugs and general medical treatment. Fee subsidy, the rest of the temporary absence of relevant policies, reflecting the situation is not true. The national subsidy fund for basic public health service projects in 2018 has already allocated 14.53 yuan per capita, which reflects that less than 10 yuan is not true.
According to the circular, in the first half of 2019, the county Party committee and the county government ordered the departments of finance, health care and medical insurance to allocate funds such as subsidies for basic public health services and essential medicines before July 20.
According to the circular, the above problems reflect the delays in the allocation of funds for basic public health services projects by relevant county departments, which has affected the smooth development of grass-roots health work.
On July 9, Peng Mei News learned from the staff of the Propaganda Department of Tongxu County Committee that the whole county of Tongxu is currently investigating such incidents. According to preliminary understanding, the appeal of 28 village doctors in Dagang Lixiang is the same as that of 36 village doctors in Zhusha Town who resigned collectively before.
On the morning of September 9, the National Health Commission held a press conference. At the meeting, Song Cheng, spokesman of the National Health and Health Commission, said that he had asked Henan Health and Health Commission to investigate and verify the situation immediately, regardless of the link in which the problem occurred, to investigate clearly and rectify it immediately.
At the national level, 40% of the basic public health services of 60 yuan per year are required to be provided to village doctors, so there is no problem with big villages. He Jinguo, Director of the Poverty Alleviation Office of the State Health Commission and Director of the Finance Department, said in response to a question raised by the Peng Mei News that rural doctors also have a central financial subsidy for the use of essential medicines and a fee of 5 yuan for diagnosis and treatment.
