A DENTIST is being forced to sleep in his car as he cannot afford to pay his rent.

Javier Castilla, who works as a supply dentist for the Andalucia Health Service (SAS), has been without a fixed contract for a year.

Castilla, from Sevilla, only gets a contract for a few days in different centres in the region.

The situation has left him living out of a suitcase and sleeping on a mattress in his car, an old Hyundai, which he is currently parking next to the health centre in La Carihuela, in Torremolinos.

The union CSI-F has now denounced the case and blames the situation on the health cuts in the Junta.
