Algarve MP questions government on hospital snub

PSD MP for the Algarve Cristóvão Norte has questioned the government on why the project to build a central hospital in the region has been left out of the 2017 State Budget when it includes the construction of three new hospitals in Lisbon, Seixal and Évora.

“The Minister of Health cannot say the Algarve needs an urgent intervention, and then leave it out when it establishes priorities,” he told Lusa news agency.
