Fiction and reality on the salaries of doctors andalusians

"By a Primary Care dignified and of quality" more than 7,500 Family doctors and paediatricians in the health centres of Andalusia are called this Tuesday, in the midst of an election campaign, a one-day strike to criticize the policy and management of the health of the regional government of Andalusia.

The Medical Union Andalusian (SMA) has made this call after the Service Andalusian of Health (SAS) has ignored their demands during the last few months, in protests and sit-ins partial, especially in Malaga and Huelva, have been increased to the "lack of personnel, the deterioration of health care and the lack of investments and economic improvements" requested.

From the union to ensure that "the management that SAS is doing the minimum services of the strike is clearly aimed to hinder, if not prevent, the exercise of the right to strike".

The doctors refused to agree to minimum standards that were beyond to ensure urgent attention.
