Shorter stays and reduced waiting lists in Galicia

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Hospital stays and waiting lists for surgery in Galicia, Spain, have both been reduced by 20% since December 1993, reveal Sergas health authority figures. In spite of the seven-week strike over the summer, surgical waiting lists fell from 28,286 at the end of 1993 to 22,168 last July. The number of patients waiting over a year fell by almost 80% and by almost half for patients waiting six to 12 months. This can be attributed to an increase in productivity at hospitals and better use of health centres, says Sergas.
