Elche General Hospital on holiday


THERE will be 100 fewer beds at Elche General Hospital during the summer months. Sixty beds will be unavailable in July, August and September in addition to 30 removed from service since the summer of 2011.  

A further 10 beds in different medical units will also remain empty during this period. Two wings usually close each summer for renovations but this year none will be carried out owing to insufficient funds.

Instead they are closing so that staff normally assigned to them can cover for colleagues on holiday, hospital sources revealed.  This way it will not be necessary to engage temporary staff, they claimed.
