Talks between regional health councillor Luis Rosado, the regional treasury and representatives of the region's three provincial pharmacists' colleges started on Tuesday with health officials saying that they hoped to reach a solution on how outstanding payments were to be made.
By close of play no agreement had been reached and the chances of getting the strike called off faded.
The president of the pharmacists' college in Alicante, Jaime Carbonell said that there was no solution to the problem because there was no money.
I don’t blame the chemists one bit because they have been fobbed off too many times with false promises. What they want is payment for the prescriptions they have dispensed and until they get that, they intend to hold out.
