MORE than 40 per cent of Carlos Haya hospital’s Accident and Emergency department doctors have so far taken part in an indefinite strike this week.
The A&E doctors are striking to call for an end to understaffing, reduced contracts and the impossibility of balancing work and family life due to the situation at the department.
A total of 32 workers were called to strike, and one of the things unions are demanding is for 10 empty posts to be filled.
CSIF union declared that the doctors each deal with an estimated 4,000 patients per year, double the numbers treated in other provinces such as Sevilla, Cordoba or Granada.
The Andalucian Health Service has meanwhile said that patients are unaffected by the strike as minimum services are being met.
