A total of 696 patients from Fuerteventura were on the waiting list to be operated on June 30, according to figures made public by the Canary Islands Health Service.

In December 2018, there were 732 people waiting to enter the operating room at the Virgen de la Peña hospital, representing a decrease of 36 patients.

The list in general and digestive surgery was 198 patients, with a mean waiting time of 26 days.

By surgical specialities, traumatology and orthopaedic patients are the most numerous waiting (167). In addition, the average days of delay to enter the operating room in this speciality is 35 days. They are followed by otrorhinolaryngology patients (123); ophthalmology (98), gynaecology (94) and urology (15). In the speciality of ophthalmology, the decrease in waiting patients is especially striking, with 60%, going from December 161 to June 98.

The Canarian Health Service includes in what it refers to as a structural waiting list to those patients who, at any given time, are in a situation of being surgically operated and whose waiting is attributable to the organization and resources available (programmable without incident, scheduled, rejected by concerted centres).

I am glad you had a good experience, A&E is very hit and miss in the Puerto Rosario Hospital but other departments seem to get good reviews. The NHS is in such a state that things can't look that bad out here can they Smile

If you live down south there are absolutely no facilities, Pajara has 20,000 people who pay in to the Spanish health service but there is not a single x-ray machine and they have about one ultrasound, a&e comprises of a room and a single doctor. They essentially just offer 3 GP offices and apart from that you can just wait for an ambulance (maybe 4 hours?) or probably best just to call a taxi to Puerto instead..... you know if your life is at risk Sick

There was about a 10 year peiod where the government had EU Money to build a hospital in the south and they forfeited that when they couldn't get their act together to do anything in a decade!
