UEMO featured in Spanish medical publication

On May 11, UEMO was featured in the Spanish medical publication “Médicos y Pacientes”, the official communication medium of the Spanish General Medical Council (CGCOM). The publication was a special feature in light of the celebration of European Doctors’ Day (May 15).

“During the COVID-19 pandemic, UEMO has been committed to supporting general practitioners / family doctors during a period of professional stress. It has monitored burnout among its members and, after detecting the growing harassment of health workers, issued a statement, together with other European medical organizations, condemning this situation”, said UEMO’s President Calin Bumbulut.

“The contagion rate of those who work in the health sector is three times higher than that of the general population, and it is suggested that there have been more deaths among Primary Care physicians due to this virus than among any other specialty”, noted Bumbulut.
