In the Senate there was discussion about the amendment of the law on the profession of nurse and midwife and several other laws. Deputy Minister Bromber responded to the senators’ accusations and Deputy Minister Kraska, as senator, proposed two amendments to the law.
The Senate has considered the draft law amending the Act on the Professions of Nurses and Midwives and certain other laws. The change is related to the need to implement EU legislation and the simplification of procedures related to the access to the labor market of people who have completed their training in emergency medical care and physiotherapy thanks to the dismissal of state exams. The proposed amendments also address the issue of the evaluation of clinical trials of drugs until the entry into force of the Clinical Trials Act.
– Usually the implementation of EU legislation does not arouse great emotions and it seems that the works will go quickly, but after a thorough verification of the presented draft, it turns out that, apart from the topic of the implementation of provisions on nurses and midwives , it also contains three completely different and important and essential areas, she said Senator Beata Malecka-Libera report on the work of the committee.
The chairman of the Senate Health Committee pointed to the problems of implementation delays and the shortcomings of basic acts to which this implementation should refer. She also refers to the statement by State Secretary Bromber, who said during the committee meeting that the bill had been extensively publicly consulted.
– The minister missed the truth by saying that all topics were subject to public consultations – said Senator Małecka-Libera. She explains that the government bill is subject to such consultation, but only within the scope of art. 1, ie with regard to nurses and midwives. – After the consultation on the other articles, there is no written record of them and there is no public access to them on the RCL websites.
In response to questions about the delay in the implementation of the EU directive, State Secretary Bromber replied that the ministry is taking steps that match the formal and legal possibilities and is trying to place them on time.
– We are taking steps appropriate to the legislative process to settle important matters without undue delay – Responded to allegations Deputy Health Minister Piotr Bromber.
During the discussion in the debate room, State Secretary Waldemar Kraska of Public Health spoke, this time as a senator. He submitted two amendments to the law regarding aid to victims of hostilities in Ukraine.
– War entails great costs, not only socially, not only economically, but also humanly. That is why we as Poland are helping the Ukrainian nation. We are helping several million Ukrainian citizens who have fled the turmoil of the war – he explained Deputy Minister Waldemar Kraska.
The First Amendment makes it possible to treat and transport Ukrainians injured as a result of hostilities to Poland. The second concerns people who are not Ukrainian citizens, but who are fighting on the Ukrainian side during the current war and have also been injured as a result.
As there were legislative proposals, the Senate Health Committee was asked to respond and prepare a report. The vote on the bill will take place at the end of the Senate meeting.
