Mariano Oliver, Secretary General, said "that the PP government not only introduces the copay on pharmaceutical benefits, but also is also medical transportation, diet, external prostheses, wheelchairs, orthotics and ortoprótesis. Of course, all these pharmacy copayments share with unfair and unsupportive character and therefore cause serious consequences for equity. "
Oliver said "all this comes at a time when the economic crisis is hitting in a way so relevant to society, effects that are captured with special virulence in our town, because of its high unemployment rate and seniors. Translating this situation to our town, we found that families will have great trouble unionenses access the benefits outlined the public health system, unable to face the copayment, or simply waive it to avoid the expense, which will result in a worsening their health or control of their pathologies, as can be the case of dialysis patients, cancer patients, disabled, etc ... "
Socialist spokesman added that "Spanish Red Cross have been developing a commendable job in health care unionense society. Socialist government team headed by Manuel Vargas Sanes made available to that organization ambulance vehicle class to develop its work in the municipality. therefore ask the government team who will arrange for the necessary funds to make available to the Spanish Red Cross organization in the union of an adapted vehicle or ambulance care not to transfer group of people to health facilities in the public health system, as many people in the municipality will not be able to face the copayment that aims to implement the Government's Party, and will turn to Red Cross to lend your support as he always has ".
