MAM, UĦM say gov­ern­ment ob­jec­tions throw bad light on VGH con­tracts

Malta Independent - - NEWS -

The Med­i­cal As­so­ci­a­tion of Malta and the UĦM Voice of the Work­ers said yes­ter­day they are dis­ap­pointed that the Public Ac­counts Com­mit­tee has not yet ac­cepted to scru­ti­nise the con­tracts signed by Vi­tals Global Health­care and the gov­ern­ment.

It is the Speaker who must de­cide whether the is­sue should be de­bated in the PAC or par­lia­ment’s health com­mit­tee.

In a state­ment, MAM and UĦM said that this has hap­pened be­cause mem­bers of the gov­ern­ment on the PAC ob­jected to the re­quest made by the two unions. The gov­ern­ment mem­bers also ob­jected to the idea that the au­di­tor gen­eral in­ves­ti­gates these con­tracts.

This sit­u­a­tion con­tin­ues to worry work­ers em­ployed in the health sec­tor as well as pa­tients, and also con­tin­ues to throw bad light on the con­tracts signed, MAM and UĦM said.
