PLANS to build three new health centres on the Costa del Sol have been scrapped due to lack of funding.

The completion dates for work on the Ronda hospital and improvement works to the Costa del Sol hospital in Marbella have also been put on hold.

The cut backs are due to huge savings being made by the Junta.

The CHARE (high resolution hospital) centres would have been built in Torremolinos, Mijas and Estepona.

The CHARE centre in Mijas would have cared for an estimated 25,000 people while the one in Estepona, which should have been built five years ago, would have dealt with up to 100,000 patients.

The out-patient centre planned for Torremolinos would have provided health care for up to 150,000 people living in the town as well as Alhaurin de la Torre, Churriana and Puerto Blanca.

Shouldn’t they have put the funding in place and ring fenced it BEFORE they started building ? Or is that too obvious.
