The Spanish government is considering expanding the surgical and intensive care services of the Hospital Universitario on the island of Gran Canaria. So announced the general secretary for health, Rafael Perez Santamarina, in response to a parliamentary question concerning the failure to accredit the hospital's anaesthesiology department for specialised research purposes. The decision was based on the fact that the hospital was deemed to provide only limited surgical services and did not provide round-the-clock resuscitation services.
