A one-hour exchange with the CPTS

He was encouraged by the Regional Health Agency (ARS) to meet the actors of the first territorial professional health community (CPTS) created in Occitanie.

We need to make your life easier, he said. The minister also expressed his wish to give more responsibilities to local actors and promote their initiatives. The ARS will accompany with its engineering. »

I also see here that the dynamic attracts professionals and I understand that we must continue to remove the blockages and help you more. »
A meeting also appreciated by the CPTS professionals: « It’s always good to be listened to. Will it lead to something, that's always the question but if he leaves the hand locally, it will already be very good, confided Dr. Yvan Milla. Nurse Benyaha Rabehar found the exchange positive. Everyone was able to express themselves, he was attentive and close. » For his part, the president of the CPTS of the Pays de Lunel welcomed a «positive » exchange before insisting& ;nbsp;: « The CPTS is a source of proposals, the minister can rely on us to find solutions »< /em>.
