THE Andalucian Health Service (SAS) has invested €70,000 in the acquisition of a new radiology team in the health centre of San Pedro Alcantara.

Jose Luis Ruiz Espejo, the Andalucian Authority’s health representative, has announced that over the last month the necessary re-modelling work to the centre has been carried out.

Testing and installation of the new specialist equipment has been carried out, and staff have undergone all appropriate training.

The previous equipment had malfunctioned on a number of occasions and staff are pleased that is has been replaced with more modern, digital apparatus.

The new radiological system incorporates state of the art technology and includes tools for image optimisation and noise elimination.

In addition, a new waiting list management database will come into operation in the Emergency Department, resulting in better accessibility and patient safety.

The last few months have seen the Andalucian Health Service deliver improvement works to 16 primary care centres in the province.
