Nijar pushes for ambulance change

SOLO: There is currently only one ambulance available at the Clinical Management Unit (CMU) of Nijar

THE Izquierda Unida in Nijar will launch a campaign aimed at improving emergency services in the municipality.

Next Sunday, from 11.00 to 13.00, the political party will have stalls in the markets of San José, San Isidro and Las Negras where residents can sign and pledge their support.

Currently, there is only one ambulance available for immediate deployment from the Clinical Management Unit (CMU) of Nijar, even though there are two emergency medical teams there.

The IU claims that when you need to activate the second unit, the second ambulance has to move from Campohermoso to Nijar to pick up the medics and then proceed. This entails delays in service times, in many cases, exceeding established times by an average of 20 minutes for critical care processes.

In a statement, the party said the issue “is a matter of vital importance since in many of these situations service times have a direct impact on the prognosis of emergencies attended.”
