They highlight the lack of technical means, the delays in the attention of specialists in acute and chronic diseases, the lack of personnel and the collapse of primary care and telephone lines.

For his part, Mariscal has conveyed his concern about the healthcare deficiencies in the health area of Talavera, "it is the health professionals themselves who are denouncing the deficiencies and needs, PPE, PCR, reinforcements of personnel, and more technical means", And has asserted that" these should be the priorities, strengthen health care and the safety of health professionals "," the current serious situation is due to the waste of public money for years instead of being allocated to the most important, which it is the health of citizens ”.
The provincial president has reminded Page of his unfulfilled commitments "The sanitary area of Talavera is more fragile than the rest of the Community because the ratio of beds per inhabitants is much lower, while other similar sanitary areas such as Mancha-centro have 1 bed for every 343 inhabitants and Cuenca 1 bed for every 332 inhabitants, the Talavera region has one bed for every 567 inhabitants. This means that the annual budgetary allocations are lower and PAGE continues to fail to comply with the commitments acquired in the Pact for the Recovery of Talavera and its region ”and adds“ Mr. Page stop looking for excuses with Madrid because thanks to Madrid's proximity many people from Toledo and Talavera have work there, because they can't find it here ”.
In another order of topics, he asks Page:"What is the reason why a linear accelerator for cancer treatment has not been awarded to the Hospital de Talavera? Of the 7 that Amancio Ortega has donated, from VOX we ask you to rectify, that the citizens of Talavera and their region corresponds to them as well as the rest of Castilian La Mancha ”.
