Mayotte: A specific premium for hospital practitioners who settled on the island for at least 4 consecutive years




Mayotte: A specific premium for hospital practitioners who settled on the island for at least 4 consecutive years
 
Following an acute shortage of doctors on the island of Mayotte, a decree dated September 8, 2014 has introduced a special allowance of exercise (IPE) for hospital practitioners required to work in Mayotte.
 
In order to receive this allowance equivalent to 16 times the base salary, physicians and pharmacists in hospitals must meet certain fields of application.
 
Thus, the candidate has to work in a public health establishment full-time or part-time. This still leaves the possibility for the practitioner to exercise professional.
 
The candidate must also agree in writing to remain in office in Mayotte for at least 4 consecutive years.
 
The specific allowance which comes into force on 1st October and not retroactively will be paid to the beneficiary in four installments and if voluntary departure occurs before the minimum installation time, the practitioner will have to pay the entire premium received.
 
In June 2014, outside the scope of hospital medicine, the island of Mayotte counted only seven GPs for 212,000 inhabitants and not a single specialist, as reported by the la1ere.fr site.
