More family doctors' strikes for later in November are announced

  • Those supporting stoppages will halt the current part-time strike action and stop work all day on 16, 23 and 27 November

GPs and paediatricians in Malaga province are to step up their industrial action. Some doctors are calling for more time to see patients and better working conditions.

At a meeting on Monday, those supporting stoppages decided to change their strategy, halting the current part-time strike action and stopping work all day instead on 16, 23 and 27 November.

The doctors also voted to hold larger-scale demonstrations soon to increase the visibility of their protest.

Up to now, not all doctors have taken part in the stoppages and minimum legal service levels have also limited the impact of the action.
