The motion of the government team calls for modern, coordinated and close healthcare that provides the necessary resources to healthcare professionals

The plenary session will ask the Ministry for the immediate reopening of the CICU in the province of Alicante on Monday

The government team of Benidorm City Council will raise a motion next Monday in a plenary session urging the Ministry of Universal Health and Public Health to activate "the immediate reopening of the CICU in the province of Alicante for a compact, modern, coordinated health, and close to the problems and realities of the population, and which provides all the necessary resources to our health professionals to carry out their work with full guarantees”.

The motion, signed by the spokespersons Lourdes Caselles and Mónica Gómez, reminds us that the CICU (Emergency Information and Coordination Center) was created in 1992 and that in 1995 it was decentralized to Alicante and Castellón "for the sake of better assistance to our fellow citizens”. The objective of this measure was "to arrive in the shortest possible time and stabilize the patient to reach the most appropriate referral hospital to assist him."

Progressively, the centers were counting on new endowments so that there were no vulnerable points in the Valencian Community so that each provincial CICU "is aware of the endowment of assistance personnel of SVB and SAMU and the resources within the departments of its area to optimize assistance and optimally organize it”.

The text of the motion indicates that already in May 2021 the popular group warned of the "reckless changes" sought by the Ministry, a rejection in which both unions and medical and nursing associations agreed because the draft had been created "by the back door and without the consensus of professionals or their representatives and for going against the existing consensus in the Community to decentralize resources to bring the reference services closer to the citizen”.

"What was then a draft and a declaration of intent is now a reality" which has materialized with the closure last May of the CICU in Castellón and on January 11 that of Alicante "after refusing to listen to the social agents" and demonstrating that the Regional Government "its null will to dialogue".

The popular motion also highlights "the role that the CICUs have played over the years," which it describes as "fundamental." "For this reason, we understand that this centralization implies a decrease in the quality of Urgent and Emergency Health Care" adds the text.

Finally, the popular group expresses through the proposal "the total support for the existence of the provincial CICUs and, especially, we convey our gratitude to all the workers who during these years have carried out a silent and impeccable work.
