In this regard, Tongxu County reported after the previous investigation that in 2018, there was no problem in allocating the funds for essential drugs and general medical treatment in Zhusha Town, and that the national basic public health service projects had allocated 14.53 yuan per capita, reflecting that less than 10 yuan was untrue. In the first half of 2019, state subsidies for basic public health services and essential medicines were allocated by the county Party committee and the county government before July 20.
According to the information on Tongxu County Government website, the total population of the county is 590,000 (2002).
In response to this incident, He Jinguo, Director of the Poverty Alleviation Office and Director of Finance Department of the State Health and Health Commission, said on July 9 that relevant policies at the national level ensure the treatment of village doctors. At the national level, 60 yuan per person per year is required for basic public health services, and 40% of them should be supplied to village doctors.
Peng Mei News noted that according to the national regulations, in 2018, 55 yuan per person (editorial note: 2019 is 60 yuan per person) is required for basic public health services, 40% of which is for village doctors, that is, 22 yuan. According to the countys 590,000 people (2002), in 2018, the local funds for basic public health services involving village doctors should be more than 12 million yuan.
On the evening of July 9, Wang Wei, director of Tongxu County Health and Health Commission, told Pengmei News that up to now, all the funds in arrears had been allocated in place. All the funds in the county have been distributed.
The head of the Propaganda Department of Tongxu County Committee has said that similar problems are being investigated.
Is there any situation in other townships of Tongxu County, such as Zhusha Town and Dagang Li Township? Wang Wei did not respond specifically.
Wang Wei asked the county finance bureau how much money was allocated and where it came from.
Wang Wei said the problem was that the allocation was not timely. There is absolutely no deduction.
Why are there arrears? Wang Wei said that the county finance bureau could make it clear that the funds of the County Finance Bureau were not in place, (if) they gave us in place, we issued it. By the end of the year, rigid expenditure was relatively high. I heard that at that time (funds) were in a pool of social security.. Its a little tight.
On the evening of July 9, the relevant person in charge of Tongxu County Finance Bureau told Peng Mei News that the national funds for basic public health services, subsidies for essential medicines and general medical treatment are all special funds of the superiors, (superiors) are usually allocated in batches (down). As long as the above money comes, we (county finance bureau) will allocate it to the county health and health committee, and he will go down again. Face dialing. However, the person in charge was subsequently called away by telephone and did not continue to be interviewed.
Staff members of the National Health and Health Commission have arrived for information.
On July 9, Wang Wei, director of Tongxu County Health Care Committee, told Pengmei News that the county health care committee first allocated funds to township health centers and then to village doctors. The principle stipulates that 50% should be allocated in the first half of the year, 40% at the end of the year and 10% in February of the next year. The county health and Health Commission assesses every township health centre half a year, and the township health centre assesses the village doctors quarterly, because the assessment takes time. The first half of the years requirement is that the funds be allocated in place before 30 June. In February of the following year, 10% of the funds allocated were for performance. According to the assessment, they were used to reward and punish the village doctors who did not do well, and to reward the village doctors who did well.
According to Wang Wei, the funds to be allocated in the first half of 2019 are just a few days late.
Wang Wei introduced that all the work done by village doctors was purchasing services by the government, and all the signatures were the agreement of the government purchasing basic public health services in village clinics. He believes that, first of all, it is wrong to say that the resignation of village doctors is no job; secondly, village doctors have no salary, the income of village doctors is the cost of government purchasing services; thirdly, all village doctors in Tongxu County have not stopped working, and resignation is a disturbance to urge allocation.
He also said that at present, the village doctors are in a very stable mood, without a minutes delay in work.
On the afternoon of July 9, several village doctors declined to interview. They are reluctant to talk about the issue of payment of specific subsidies, and some village doctors are frank and afraid of being prosecuted. However, several village doctors said they had received funds on that day.
Some village doctors said that with the increase of national basic public health services, more detailed regulations and electronic, the workload is indeed very large. As for income, if the village is large and there are more villagers to serve, the income is good.
Pengmei News learned from the Propaganda Department of Tongxu County Committee and the county health committee that the staff of the State Health and Health Commission arrived in Tongxu County on the afternoon of 9 th for information. Earlier, in connection with the collective resignation of village doctors incident in Tongxu County, Song Cheng, spokesman of the State Health and Health Commission, said that he attached great importance to it and had asked the Henan Health and Health Commission to investigate and verify the situation immediately, regardless of the link in which the problem occurred, and to rectify it immediately.
