per shift, inpatient rehabilitation department for 81 beds, day hospital for 36 beds, surgical and therapeutic hospitals.

All conditions have been created for this: a swimming pool, several gyms, a motor skills development room, where people after injuries re-debry learn to stand on their feet, walk, talk – return to a full life,” Bakhtiyar Konkabayev said.

The branch of the medical center employs 121 medical workers, 95 of them members of the trade union – a member organization of the Branch Trade Union of Medical Workers QazMed. During the meeting with the Chairman of the FPRC, medical workers noted that thanks to the partnership between the trade union and the employer, the working conditions for medical staff are the most favorable.

By the way, about the work of the medical workers themselves. The average salary of the center’s employees is 250 thousand tenge, working shifts are observed strictly according to the established schedule. As Serik Kakenov, chairman of the local trade union SENIM of health care workers of Akmola region, noted, since doctors and nurses need to regain strength after difficult shifts, they have the opportunity to do health gymnastics immediately in the medical center.

Chairman of the Federation of Trade Unions of the Republic of Kazakhstan Satybaldy Dauletalin thanked the medical staff for their conscientious work and noted that trade unions pay close attention to the social protection of medical workers.

“Health and rehabilitation of employees is the basis of labor productivity. Your work aimed at returning people to a full life is invaluable. But doctors and nurses themselves need support. During the COVID-19 pandemic, we achieved the payment of allowances to each medical worker who contributed to the fight against coronavirus infection. The remuneration of medical workers is systematically increasing. We’re not going to stop there. We continue to work together with social partners to amend labor legislation in terms of remuneration, create new workplace safety mechanisms and new types of social guarantees. The health of the nation, first of all, depends on a healthy attitude towards medical workers,” Satybaldy Dauletalin emphasized.
