And still they wait in Torre de Benagalbón

The new doctor’s surgery in Torre de Benagalbón has been finished for over a year now. It has all the necessary electricity, telephony and water, it just lacks furniture and staff, meaning that the 8,000 residents still have to travel to Rincón de la Victoria to see a doctor.

The building has two floors, six consultation offices, waiting room, library, nursing area, changing rooms and toilets. But no staff.

The Junta de Andalucia has still not taken reception of the building and apparently claims to have no funds to enable it to open.

The Health Delegate for Málaga, Daniel Pérez, has reportedly stated that there is a ‘commitment’ to study the possibility of doing something in the coming months but added that the priority is to maintain existing facilities and avoid cuts or privatisations and doesn’t see the facility opening in the short term.
