The 24 hour emergency health service in Bigastro will be cut from the 1st June. Those requiring emergency care after 10pm will now have to go to the hospital at Orihuela. The estimated saving is 1.8 million Euros.
When I took a funny turn up at La Pedrera, they took me to Vega Baja. Since, I was not deemed an emergency case, I waited hours to be seen and whilst I was taken by ambulance to the hospital, I had to get a taxi back home. My advice therefore is to fall ill during the daytime and make sure you have the fare for a taxi with you at all times.
