NO PROBLEMS: Health centres and Social Services in five Vega Baja towns will have a telephone translation service Photo credit: Pixabay

FIVE Vega Baja towns which habitually unify some municipal resources, now have an 18-language telephone translation service.

This is designed to assist personnel at health centres and doctors’ surgeries as well as the town hall’s Social Services departments in Algorfa, Jacarilla, Redovan and San Miguel de Salinas who make up the Mancomunidad La Vega.

This will be of great help in assisting the integration of the town’s non-Spanish residents and helping them to access essential services, explained Pilar Diaz Rodriguez, who is both president of the Mancomunidad as well as mayor of Jacarilla.
