THE Balearic Health Service will invest a record amount of €1.39 billion next year.
That is 5.62 per cent more than this year, according to Councillor for Health, Patricia Gomez, who explained in the Balearic Parliament that the increased budget is proof of the regional government’s aims and priorities.
This amount includes €14 million which will be used to reduce waiting lists, she explained, adding that hiring more healthcare staff was also a priority and a large part of the money would be destined for this. Gomez added that the regional government aimed to put an end to increasing social differences, and as from January 1, there will no longer be any cost for the health card, to ensure that healthcare is free to all citizens, and an efficient and quality service is provided.
