Medical staff demonstrated outside the San Antonio medical centre in Motril in protest over several attacks on members of the staff.
To give readers an idea on how grave the situation is, there were 14 such physical attacks on doctors and nurses during the course of 2018.
This protest at the doors of the centre were triggered by the latest attack on one of the female doctors, who had suffered two acts of aggression in the same week; one on the Tuesday and the other on the Friday.
The said doctor is on sick leave as a result.
The main hospital, Santa Ana, also suffers such incidents with one around mid January. The victim, however, decided not to report the incident to the police.
