CDS-PP/Azores, one of the parties that make up the regional government, today called for “more transparency in the relationship” between regional health services and private clinics, and requested clarification of the relationship between private and public entities.
“CDS-PP Azores calls for more transparency in the relationship between regional health service institutions and private clinics,” said a press release sent by the party, adding that today centrist deputies visited the Divino Espírito Santo Hospital (HDES) in Ponta Delgada.
According to the statement, the CDS-PP Parliamentary Chair in the Regional Legislative Assembly, Catarina Capisiras, considered that “only” regional health services can “provide a complete and capable response in the region” with regard to health care.
“We consider, therefore, that it is important to clarify some of the issues that relate to the relationship between regional health service institutions, specifically HDES, and private entities that provide health care,” said Cabeceiras.
On Monday, the CDS-PP parliamentary group asked the regional government for clarifications regarding the possible backlog of public and private jobs at Hospital do Divino Espírito Santo, in Ponta Delgada, on the island of São Miguel.
The regional government of the Azores, in the PSD/CDS-PP/PPM coalition, is led by social democrat José Manuel Bolero.
