Doctors have already overbooked in Montfort

“We must not be forgotten”

“We breathed a sigh of relief when the company was acquired by Com’com.” The mayor of Montfort sur Risle regrets, however, that “there are only three doctors left in our city with 789 inhabitants, for a living space of 10 to 12,000 inhabitants. They are overbooked and no longer take anyone. »

Especially since one of them travels in December. It should be replaced. “But we need two more. I want GPs. We deserve four. The problem is that young people no longer work as before. They want to work in a group and do not want to work twelve hours a day like their older ones.”

About Jean-Luc Barre welcomes the completion of the works in Pont-Audemer, “a beautiful showcase”, he would like “not to be forgotten. Not everything has to go to Pont-Audemer. We have to make the city come alive and that all this harmonizes. We are not communists, but we are communitarians, so the mayor is appealing to the community of municipalities so she performs work to expand practice to accommodate an additional physician, with “such a paint and reorganization. We have no money.” It is on the right track, as a statement has just been made with an architect.
