Even before the Covid-19 epidemiological emergency, a survey we proposed to the Piedmontese health professionals revealed that for 94% of responders managing children in the summer months represented a problem, defined as very serious by over 56% of them.
Following are the requests: «For these workers and workers we are now asking in the city of Turin for pilot projects of summer centers in the municipal parks next to the hospitals. Registration for summer camps should be reserved as a priority to the children of ASL employees. They should agree with the summer camps, contributing financially to the payment of a portion of the tuition. The opening hours should have a certain flexibility, to be reconciled with the hospital shifts. ” And again: “That in the cities where summer centers are already planned, an ASL convention with them will be activated, so that an economic contribution is foreseen as well as the priority of registration for the children of the employees”.
