For more than a month San Pedro town hall and the Costa del Sol Health District have been looking for a new location for the prefabricated units which currently house consulting rooms at the health centre in San Pedro. They will have to be moved so the new one can be built.
It hasn't been an easy task and several possibilities were ruled out but the provincial Health delegate, Ana Isabel González, says the decision has now been made and a site has been selected not far away from the existing health centre. Once the paperwork has been completed the units will be moved straight away and the works on the new facility can begin. The units are likely to be transferred to their new location over a weekend, to reduce the inconvenience caused to patients.
The new health centre will be on the same site as the present one but will be three times as big. The project is costing 4.6 million euros and should be completed some time next year.
