The present and future of retirement in family and community medicine and pediatrics

Recently, the Ministry of Social Security has announced a pilot scheme to allow voluntary active retirement for family physicians and primary care paediatricians for three years. This allows you to collect 75 per cent of your pension and continue working part-time. The measure aims to prevent retirements in family and community medicine due to a lack of young people to fill these positions.

In view of this announcement, the Study Center of the Medical Union of Granada has prepared a new report on Retirement of family and community medicine doctors and paediatricians Compared to potential MIR futures.

Thus, part of the premise is that for this active retirement to be successful, as well as delayed retirement, it is necessary that exercise conditions be significantly improved. At present, it is very unattractive to continue with the current workload. According to data from the press release for the presentation of the active retirement plan to the total number of PC physicians retiring between 2019 and 2022, the retirement age percentages are as follows: 10 percent at age 63; with 64 years, 8 percent; with 65 years, 41 percent; with 66 years, 24 percent; 67 years 8 percent; 68, with 4 percent; With 69 years, 1 percent and with 70 years, 4 percent.

Retirement in Family and Community Medicine and Pediatrics

Thus, the first conclusion is that it is necessary medium and long term planning, it is essential for A new demographic study with more data by age or age groups of at least five years. This should include data on the age of advance, normal or delayed retirement for each year in family and community medicine and paediatrics. Data on recidivism and MIR abandonment, emigration and immigration should also be repeated every two years to take timely measures.

Based on the ministry’s report titled “Supply-Need for Medical Specialists 2021-2035”, the association reaches several conclusions, in particular, on the state of paediatrics. Thus, it appears that in six years (2021 to 2026) this may be sufficient for the retirement that may take place in the SNS aged 60 and above. However, pediatricians in private healthcare must be taken into account, positions that are now vacant and which are occupied by non-specialists in pediatrics. Therefore, it will be necessary to deepen the demographic study.

The association between pediatricians aged 50 to 59 years and MIR expiring in these ten years (2027 to 2036) has also been studied. Thus, during this time, 2,538 paediatricians from the SNS and some 540 from the private sector will reach retirement age, and around 5,000 paediatricians will complete the MIR in these years. In this way, more than 2,300 pediatricians have exceeded potential retirement. They will be more than enough to fill positions that may now be vacant and occupied by doctors without expertise.

Current and future shortages in pediatrics

In sum, in these 16 years (2021 to 2036) 4,449 pediatricians will reach retirement age and complete the MIR, taking into account this year’s call, for a maximum total of 7,745 new specialists. It could stay at 7,613, taking into account that the average who finished between 2017 and 2021 was 98.3 percent, which is a lot of potential retirements.

In other words, after 16 years approximately 3,200 pediatricians will have been trained in Spain, exceeding the potential retirement in the SNS.

Thus, the conclusion about possible retirement in family and community medicine and pediatrics is that Spain needs, For now and for a few years, the deficit features calls with more MIR positions. Even then, After five to ten years, there won’t be as much need for MIR pediatric positions. Therefore, it is necessary to conduct more adjusted demographic studies to look at the needs. “We cannot train doctors to work for two months in the summer and offer them contracts for hours, days from Monday to Friday… no matter how willing a manager is,” They draw conclusions from association.
