Valencian Health Minister, Manuel Llombart, has apologised for lengthy waits in the emergency departments in local hospitals over the winter, especially at the Vega Baja Hospital, as reported in last week’s Courier. Speaking in Torrevieja last Monday at the opening of a private clinic, the minister said that the problems will disappear in March but that the delays that happened at the Vega Baja facility were no different to those elsewhere in the region and further afield.  Llombart added that he believed Torrevieja Hospital to be one of the best in Spain.
