The Board of Spokespersons will jointly raise the motions that require solutions for the IES Pere Mª and the Pediatrics Service
The Board of Spokespersons has agreed unanimously today to raise to the plenary as joint motions the proposals to demand from the Generalitat Valenciana solutions for the unfinished works of the Pere Mª Orts i Bosch Secondary Education Institute (IES) and the lack of human resources in the Pediatric Service of the Marina Baixa Regional Hospital.
In a meeting in which the mayor Toni Pérez has informed the groups about the situation generated concerning the cultural centre, it has been decided that both motions - originally proposed by the mayor and by the municipal group of the PP - be included in the order of the day as motions of the Board of Spokespersons.
The first motion calls for the Generalitat Valenciana to complete the pending works at the IES Pere Mª Orts i Bosch, which were paralyzed four years ago, just a few weeks after being resumed. According to the documentation provided by the Conselleria at the beginning of 2017, 15% of the extension would be pending execution, given that the remaining 85% had been completed when the works were paralyzed for the first time due to the bankruptcy of the company awardee.
Hence, after years of unfulfilled announcements, the Corporation "demands a quick solution that ends once and for all with the situation that this infrastructure is experiencing and especially the educational community of the IES Pere Mª Orts i Bosch".
In the second motion, from the City Council, the Ministry of Health is urged to solve "urgently" the "serious" situation of the Pediatric Service of the Marina Baixa Regional Hospital, where outpatient consultations of this speciality have been suspended due to a lack of personnel. As stated in the text, the professionals themselves recently alluded that of the eleven paediatricians who made up the service, there are currently only four left, which they considered "the result of the lack of foresight and neglect in the last two years." They added that with the "dismantled" service, "more than 200 children a week" were being stopped.
