At the hospital, some emergency physicians negotiate rates of up to 4,000 euros per day

Proposals fall, several times a day, into their professional and personal mailboxes. “I get a lot of them,” notes emergency physician Mathias Wargon. “More and more”, confirms his colleague Frédéric Adnet. Offers of one-off missions, paid beyond the regulatory rates, to bring doctors to departments where there is already a shortage of arms and where they will become even rarer in the light of a summer which promises to be extremely tense in the hospital.
