Good news for those living in the Axarquía area as the Hospital Comarcal de la Axarquía is now providing Oncological services Monday to Friday.
Until recently, the hospital only attended patients requiring these services on Thursdays.
This is all part of the 2020 plan, including an expansion of day-patient, doctor services providing greater diagnostic and therapeutical services; until now patients have had to go the general hospital in Málaga.
The Area Manager for Health, Este-Axarquía, Miguel Moreno, said that they are putting together an Unidad de Continuidad de Asistencia for cronic patients who will be able to receive treatment during the day and return home in the evenings, rather than remain on a normal hosptial ward.
“A patient who suffers a relapse or degeneration of their health can go directly to the Hospital de Día for treatment, rather than attending A&E or via their G.P., explained the Area Manager.
