The mayor of Gador, Eugenio Gonzalvez Garcia, has sent a letter to the provincial delegate for the Council of Equality, Health and Policy, Alfredo Valdivia Ayala, indicating his worries about the situation in Gador concerning the health service and asking for urgent measures to be taken.
This letter echoes the many Garcia has received from residents in the area about the way the health centre is run.
There have been serious cutbacks to consultancy hours and the doctors are substituted almost every 15 days.
The Health Centre in Gador should have: two general practice doctors, one paediatrician shared with the Benahadux municipality, two nurses and one assistant nurse – all on a permanent basis.
The mayor and the residents do not doubt the professionalism of the health care staff but are worried that the constant changes may lead to a lack of personalised care.
