The Union Brazil candidate for the Presidency of the Republic, Soraya Thronicke, defended today (27), as a priority for an eventual government, the correction of the table of the Unified Health System (SUS). The candidate also highlighted that she voted, as a senator, in favor of the nursing floor and intends, if elected president, to value careers related to health.
“First, let’s update the SUS table. It is not possible for professionals to work with this outdated table”, he said, at a press conference. “We also understand the difficulty of managing a hospital, a clinic, of managing without updating the table”, he added. The SUS table is used to pay for medical and hospital services provided by private establishments that are affiliated to the public health network.Soraya
Soraya Thronicke also highlighted that she intends to use the private health network to quickly fill the deficit in the public system. “The private sector is able to supply the state’s deficit, overnight. It is able to do this because it has the space to do so, it provides an excellent service and the government can indeed pay the private sector”, she said.
The candidate campaigned today in São Paulo.
