PP Member of Parliament Rosalia Espinosa has denounced delays in operations at Torrecárdenas Hospital due to the lack of anaesthetists.

According to the  Ministry of Health, there is an outstanding waiting list for surgery for over 2,000 people in Torrecárdenas.

Espinosa explains that, “In Torrecárdenas all existing operating rooms cannot work because they would have to hire between 38 and 40 anaesthetists… so the surgical activity of the hospital is suffering.”


She added that “our intention is not to alarm society,” but notes that there have been numerous complaints from patients, relatives of patients and health professionals and therefore we have nothing else to do but go public and call on the Ministry of Health for a commitment to health in Almería.”
