The reason for the lack of medical staff in St. Petersburg may be low wages - media

The shortage of medical staff in St. Petersburg, as well as their often low qualifications, can be explained by low salaries. Journalists came to this conclusion after studying the situation on the labor market. So, based on official data, the average salary of therapists and district doctors in the city on the Neva does not exceed 50 thousand rubles. At the same time, for example, a foreman at a construction site earns more than 78 thousand rubles. It turns out that St. Petersburg doctors receive 38% less.

It is not surprising that during the pandemic, many doctors left medical institutions and are in no hurry to return. Because of the coronavirus, doctors faced a huge burden, but they did not receive commensurate additional payments for this. The head of Smolny dragged on until the last moment with the signing of a document on the payment of bonuses for working with patients with covid.

In winter, at the request of the Governor of St. Petersburg Alexander Beglov, the work of polyclinics was extended until 20 pm. This means that in the event of a new powerful wave of COVID-19 cases, the city on the Neva may again face mass layoffs, because it is easier to go to work at a construction site.
