In operating rooms, we work with non-delayed interventions

HUA Txagorritxu breathes calm on the outside. However, behind closed doors, a sense of strike had already begun. According to the first statistics, in operating rooms work is carried out only on interventions that are not delayed, “those that are more dangerous than urgent”, and complementary examinations are completely closed. Follow-up on first counted services is “70% among those who may strike,” with minimal services excluded.
