MALAGA Public Prosecutor has requested an investigation into the death of a woman who was diagnosed with migraines and high blood pressure.

The patient died on October 13, aged 30, after having attended the health centres on numerous occasions over the period of a year, and was allegedly given injections and tablets but no tests were carried out.

On October 2, she was sent to Malaga University Hospital, where she is said to have had x-rays, tests and an ECG, although the Patients’ Ombudsman has said that neither she nor her relatives were given any documents to prove that any of this had been done.

After this, she attended health centres in Tolox and Alozaina on four more occasions and was given oxygen and tranquilizers. Just days before her death, she went back to the hospital where she was told to get an appointment with a specialist and sent to the Costa del Sol Hospital in Marbella where she suffered a brain haemorrhage and fell to the floor while having breakfast.

Three hours passed before she was taken to the Carlos Haya Hospital in Malaga where she died that night.
