The Ciudadanos (Cs) political group has announced that they will demand explanations in the next plenary session from the Valencia Minister of Health, Ana Barceló, about “the general situation of health in the Valencian Community and specifically about the situation of the University Hospital of Torrevieja”.

Their representative, Ruth Merino, has commented that Torrevieja hospital, since the reversal has taken place, has gone from being “leading edge and with a high degree of satisfaction” to “having positions handpicked, people working without a contract, patients who wait days to be served, outsourced services and growing waiting lists.”

“We want to highlight the predominance of sectarian ideology over people’s health,” she added.

Ciudadanos has also proposed the creation of a study commission to solve the problems at the hospital due to the worsening of the service and the lack of personnel.
