Accidents increase in 2023
#1
Radio Sintonia:

Traffic, domestic and work-related accidents grow by 13.66% in Fuerteventura in 2023.

The Canary Islands Emergency Service (SUC), attached to the public company Gestión de Servicios para la Salud y Seguridad en Canarias and dependent on the Ministry of Health, recorded 17,547 incidents in Fuerteventura in 2023. Most of them, 14,709, were related to cases of illness, while the rest, which reached 2,838, were classified as accidents, both traffic, domestic and work, as well as other types of accidents, which increased by 13.66%.



In addition, last year the staff of the SUC assisted a total of 16,927 people who required some type of out-of-hospital health care and/or transfer to a health care center, which represents almost 5% of the total population served by this service in the Canary Islands.

In this sense, most of the incidents recorded, with a total of 8,520, were related to health emergency situations and 4,103 to emergencies, services in which care can be prioritized. Another 1,905 were resolved by the health coordinators of the SUC, medical and nursing professionals, through the telecare provided to resolve their request for help, without the need for the intervention of mobile resources.
