The PSOE claims better health planning so that areas such as the Altiplano or Cieza have guaranteed specialized care

Friday, January 18th, 2019

Deputy Yolanda Fernández denounces that the absence of rheumatologists or other services is a grievance for the inhabitants of these areas

The deputy of the Socialist Parliamentary Group Yolanda Fernandez requires the regional government, through the Murciano Health Service, greater and better planning of health care in the area of ​​Health V, corresponding to the Altiplano region, as well as in those other areas , like that of Cieza, where there is an absence of certain specialist services.

The Socialist Parliamentary Group will present a question in the Assembly addressed to the Minister of Health, for what explains the reasons why in the Altiplano or Vega Alta region there are no specialists in rheumatology.

Yolanda Fernández denounced the discrimination suffered by the inhabitants of some health areas for decades regarding specialized care, which is a grievance and a clear violation of the principle of equality among the citizens of the Region.

"The absence of rheumatologists or other specialists in the health areas of Yecla and Cieza is inadmissible because it forces patients to travel many kilometers to be treated, while demonstrating poor planning, since while in some areas there are up to five rheumatologists, in other areas there is no attention. "

The Socialist parliamentarian recalled that the absence of these doctors is not the only case.

Last October the Socialist Parliamentary Group demanded in the Assembly the start-up of a mental health emergency service in the "Virgen del Castillo" hospital in Yecla, since these patients had to move in some cases to Murcia to be taken care of

In addition, from the lack of digestologists, which forced to cancel the Colon Cancer Screening Program in the Altiplano.

Fernandez said that about 60,000 people living in the municipalities of Jumilla and Yecla often suffer delays in medical appointments, which increases the waiting lists of specialties.

Therefore, it demanded equal treatment from the regional government for all areas of health, so that all the inhabitants of the Region have guaranteed comprehensive health care, "and as the Murcian Society of Rheumatology says, it can also be carried out a necessary preventive work ".
