In a note from the Chamber, the mayor, Pedro Magalhães Ribeiro, said he had received from the minister “a guarantee that Cartaxo would have a new health centre, funded by the so-called European ‘Bazooka’, serving more than 15,000 registered users there.”
In response to a question from Lusa about the location of the new center, the mayor added that there are two possibilities in the equation which are “municipal land without any building”.
The next step is to schedule a meeting with the regional health department in Lisbon and Valle do Tego [ARSLVT] To present these two alternatives within the urban space of the city of Cartaxo. […]. “They are the people who seem to be the most viable, given the location in the city,” the socialist mayor said.
Pedro Magalhães Ribeiro admitted he still had no idea about the investment involved and added that ARSLVT will provide budget estimates for the classification of infrastructure services, which will replace the existing 28-year-old health centre.
Regarding the deadline for completion of the work, the mayor stated that “since it will be funded by the European ‘Bazooka’, it should be within a year and a half to two years”.

In addition to this investment, Pedro Magalhaes Ribeiro defended the urgency of “rehabilitating the Ponteville health unit.” [valência com 14 anos] and the expansion of the Valle da Pedra, as well as the urgent strengthening of the municipality’s health professionals, especially at the level of family physicians. ”
“Like what we did in Valada in 2018, when we assumed 36,000 euros of municipal investment to ensure the health extension remains open, we also maintain availability, through the municipal budget, to ensure intervention in Ponteville and Valle da Piedra,” said the mayor.
According to a note from the local authority, Pedro Magalhães Ribeiro also claimed to “strengthen transportation and increase the number of family doctors in the municipality”.
