United Left-Greens and Socialists for Cartagena, parties that form the Plural Left in our town, have called on the region and the City Council to not plant closures hospital and health centers occur in Cartagena this summer, further aggravating more health problems in the county, already high due to the closure and dismantling of Rosell.
Both formations have remembered that it is in the summer when the health area has a greater number of users due to the massive influx of tourists and vacationers to the coast.
Given this situation, and through a motion by Councilwoman United Left-Greens María Rosa Mateo to be discussed at the council meeting to be held next Tuesday, has called for the services that the Department plans to close are maintained and that are in the U53 St. Lucia Hospital Internal Medicine (July and August) average plant U32 Gynecology, the U31 Specialties (15 July to 15 September) and to dedicate it to accommodate patients Specialties.
In Rosell will be closed during August and Ambulatory Surgery Minor SUAP El Parcheesi Rosell will be moved to within the policy of turning the PP in an outpatient hospital.
As for health centers is planned total closure of San Isidro and El Escobar and evenings the Barrio Peral, Pachisi and Los Dolores.
It was also requested in the motion that urges the Department of Health to take real and effective measures against the excessive-and unacceptable increase in own words of the minister, Catherine de Lorenzo waiting lists.
The data are devastating.
Delays in operating rooms have shot up to 119 days on average, 21 more than in the rest of Spain, up 22%.
There is a 65% more citizens carrying more than 150 days waiting for an intervention, rising from 5,075 in 2012 to 8,372 in 2013.'s Also 160% more cases in which it has been waiting over a year for intervention, being 977 citizens in this case, compared to 375 in 2012.
What's more poignant is the specialty of General Digestive Surgery, with 1,823 patients exceeding 180 days.
But the situation is chaotic in general, being good examples of Otolaryngology, the wait is 128 days past and affects 177 394 people;
Trauma, which has gone from 93-123 u Ophthalmology, which has gone from 83 to 97 days.
Displaying data for different areas of SMS, Cartagena has the worst in the region .. This in a city where the municipal government team supporting the decommissioning and closure of the second hospital Rosell as Area II Health.
In this case there are truly shocking figures, as the 229-day waiting in Angiology and Vascular Surgery or ENT 283.
The sad reality is that the regional government decree which fixed the maximum expected in 150 days or even the central government that sets 180 have remained a dead letter, in another statement to deceive the city, in another example of how the PP acts against the general interests of the people of the Autonomous Region in general and Cartagena in particular.
Because the reality of which we speak is that in 2013 a total of 6,936 patients have passed the expected fixed in the decrees, which represents a 78% increase over 2012. Among them, 977 have passed the year of waiting, as we have commented.
