Pnrr ad personam: thus the government (and Brunetta) extend the career of the doctor of Palazzo Chigi

The case of Brunella Vercelli, torn from retirement, is a hymn to hope: if there is a one in a million chance of solving a problem, keep in mind, that possibility can come. The important thing is to be in the right place or to be called Brunella Vercelli.

No clear objectives, numbers that don’t add up, old projects: all the holes in the NRP

Doctor Vercelli, general practitioner, head of the health unit of Palazzo Chigi (and already, in Palazzo Chigi there is a dedicated medical unit), a salary of 217,000 euros according to the latest documents published, was to take leave in November, envelop the memories, put away the melancholy , because he has reached 65 years of age. However, in early August, while fins, rifles and goggles are worn in the courtroom, and the parliamentarians are a bit distracted and a bit distant, the government introduced a paragraph to decree law 80 in transit for conversion. The text is obviously incomprehensible: «The faculty referred to in art. 5-bis, paragraph 2, of the decree-law of 30 December 2019, n. 162, converted, with amendments, by law February 28, 2020, n. 8, can also be exercised by permanent medical managers at the health centers of the administrations referred to in art. 1, paragraph 2, of the legislative decree 30 March 2001, n. 165 “. This jumble of references, supported by the offices of Minister Renato Brunetta, postponed the retirement of Dr. Vercelli, dear to the Minister of Forza Italia and to several former Prime Minister.


The miracles of the NRP: the ministers make up armies of experts and consultants worth millions of euros

The law passed last year for the pandemic emergency, which gives medical directors of the national health system on the front line against Covid-19 the right to postpone retirement from 65 to 70 years, at the beginning of August was extended to (very few ) managers of the (very few) health centers of the public administration. Dr Vercelli, by chance, benefits from it: «They didn’t do it for me. It had to be done for some time. I made an application to remain in service, who knows, I could stay a few months or they will send me away ». Just a hymn to hope. And not only.
