THE Junta de Andalucia has sent more doctors to primary care centres along the Almeria coast this summer.
Fourteen extra doctors, 13 nurses, six nursing auxiliaries and a driver-porter will assist centres which are at risk of saturation owing to temporarily increased populations in the province’s principal resorts during the high season.
They have been assigned to the health centres in San Jose, Aguamarga, Cabo de Gata (Almeria district); San Juan de los Terreros, Garrucha, Puerto Rey in Vera (northern district) and Mojacar Playa, Aguadulce Sur and Roquetas Norte (Poniente district).
Forty-six per cent of the primary care centres that do not normally close in the afternoon will still remain open during the summer months. This measure will apply to the centres in Cabo de Gata, La Cañada and San Juan (Almeria district) plus Cuevas del Almanzora, Huercal-Overa and Vera (north) and Adra, Berja, El Ejido, Aguadulce Sur, Roquetas Norte and Puebla de Vicar (Poniente).
