  • The number of attacks on medical professionals across the province is growing

Staff at the Axarquía hospital in Torre del Mar staged a protest last week following another incident in which a patient verbally abused a doctor, the latest in a growing number of attacks on medical professionals across the province.

The woman tried to force the A&E medic to record their conversation on her mobile phone, which she then claimed she would use in evidence to try to sue both the doctor and the hospital, in the event that the patient did not agree with her diagnosis.
