The Cotentin public hospital has announced the reduction of 190 full-time equivalent jobs by 2022, out of a total of 2,400 full-time equivalent staff. This reduction is part of a sustainable deficit reduction plan that will be presented to the public authorities. This public hospital covers several municipalities and was born in the framework of the merger, on 1 April 2006, of the Louis Pasteur hospital at Cherbourg-en-Cotentin and the public hospital at Valognes. 'We do not see at all how we can still provide the services, the staff are already overwhelmed with work', says a representative of the union FO. The hospital is already approaching 10% of absenteeism, the double of the general national average, the union fears that the deterioration of working conditions can only have negative effects.
