The Municipal Socialist Group and intended to give comprehensive coverage to the sick and their families, who often have to travel to Murcia in emergency situations, since the hospital has only psychiatrist on duty for two days a week
The Municipal Socialist Group presented a motion to the House tonight in which it proposes to provide the "Virgen del Castillo" Hospital psychiatrist on call 24 hours for emergency service and enabling 20% â€‹â€‹of the beds which states will be held law for patients who require admission.
Asun Molina explained that "this proposal stems from deficiencies in the emergency room of the Hospital that we have moved those affected and their families. The Hospital has only one psychiatrist on duty for two days a week, causing before any emergency or outbreak caused by the disease, patients and their families should move to the Hospital Román Alberca, in Murcia, to be diagnosed or treated. "
The Socialist spokesman stressed that "in emergencies, can pose a risk to the patient having to travel to Murcia unable to receive prompt attention in Yecla and is desperate for families. In addition, once in Murcia, if the risk has passed, the families must be returned with the patient on their own, creating them, in many cases, a situation of helplessness ".
According to the Socialist spokesperson "We can not allow this situation to continue to keep in Yecla, because like we have the Mental Health Center and the day center AFEMY, both of great help for people with mental illness and their families, we must provide care 24 hours in the emergency room and patients who require it, remain admitted to the city, close to family and friends. "
In the House tonight will also be put to the vote several amendments in Ordinances affecting taxes paid yeclanos.
The main one is the rise of IBI climbing 0.515% and 0.554% at a single rate for all households of 0.598%.
Asun Molina states that "the Socialist Municipal Group opposes this increase, especially high for those homes that were below the average of the assessed value for the municipality, to which the 2016 IBI will cost 16% more than this year".
The Socialist spokesman says that "we do not believe that it is time to raise indirect taxes, those that affect everyone equally, as the most affected with this IBI will rise more families who are having trouble making ends meet and it will be an unpleasant surprise next summer when it arrives receipt of IBI.
