Torrevieja Hospital | Coast News
I remember reading in your newspaper shortly after the change of management from private to state that everything had gone smoothly. I don’t think most patients would agree with that statement.
I had a blood test in October to check for a problem I had six months earlier.
The doctor told me that the test had found another problem and that they would make an appointment with a specialist at the hospital.
The request was posted on their website on October 31.
Three weeks later I had to see the doctor for some medications and I mentioned that I had not yet received an appointment and mentioned that I had read about the staff shortage at the hospital since the change.
The doctor did not confirm it, but he did prescribe some medication for the condition that was detected.
I have not yet received an appointment at the hospital and have no idea if the condition is serious or not.
We have also lost the Portal Salud website where we could see requests and appointments and any message from the medical center.
I would like to add that I received good medical care in the hospital when I was there for a few days about nine months ago, but the current problem seems to be accessing specialists when necessary.
