Benidorm is one of the best known holiday resorts on the Spanish Costa Blanca .Now the regional health authority is thinking about the closure of the medical centre in La Cala in the afternoons and evenings .
Naturally the aim is to cut costs and save money. Unions who represent the medical workers are none too happy about the proposal and they will oppose any moved made by Valencia to force this to happen .
The PSOE party in Benidorm has also come out against any such closures and a spokesperson has said that that a petition will be raised to show just how strong the feeling is amongst residents .
The spokesperson went on to explain that healthcare is a human right and not a luxury and the PP would not stand by and see yet more cuts to it .
La Cala has more patients on its books than any other clinic in Benidorm .It also has the highest ratio of patients to doctors .Unions are questioning the criteria being used by the regional authority and say that they are extremely weak .
