Over 52 million euros is to be spent boosting health cover in tourist areas of the Costa Blanca during the summer high season, according to the Valencian government health minister, Carmen Montón. In presenting her summer plan for 2016, Montón said that the summer budget was up by over seven percent on last year’s figure and she claimed that the administration was looking to make improvements to the holiday service compared to previous years, with 615 doctors being hired.

The budget covers replacing hospital and health centre staff who go on holiday as well as extra personnel being provided in 25 health centres in Alicante Province during July and August to cope with the higher demand from tourists. Seven auxilliary clinics will also be opened in areas that attract a lot of visitors.
