The Municipality of Passos increased the amount paid for professional shifts as a way of trying to guarantee full medical shifts and reduce the waiting time of patients in the long lines that form at the UPA (Emergency Care Unit).
With the readjustment, the 12-hour shift increased from R$1,261.95 to R$1,480.93 from Monday to Friday, plus a bonus of R$439.07, totaling R$1,920.
The values will be reviewed annually, applying the same indexes and on the same base date of the Annual General Review granted to public servants in Passos, according to the city hall.
The law authorizes the use of the Accreditation System for physicians on duty, for the purpose of health service providers, and sets a new value for the shift of permanent and temporary physicians who work in the UPA.
The law was signed this Wednesday (11/5) by Mayor Diego Oliveira (PSL). For the secretary of health, Vanessa Freire, the decision is right. “This is a decision of the mayor, an initial step to recognize the importance of the health professional and within the legal possibilities. More than ever, we need the strength, competence and support of these professionals”, declared Vanessa.

According to the administrative director of the UPA, Lucas Carvalho, 400 to 500 people pass through the health unit every day. “With cases of dengue, respiratory diseases in children and some cases of COVID-19 testing positive, demand is likely to grow. Another advantage of improving the remuneration of shifts is the consequent improvement in the quality of service”, highlighted Carvalho.
