SANTA CRUZ DE TENERIFE, 12th February (EUROPA PRESS) –
The La Candelaria Hospital, which is part of the Ministry of Health of the Government of the Canary Islands, has opted to restart the preparation of on-call menus for doctors and staff on special duty through the hospital’s kitchen service. This measure will be put into effect this very Tuesday, according to sources from the complex and the Tenerife medical union informing Europa Press.
As a result, the previous system is reinstated and doctors will be able to have their lunch and dinner in the complex’s cafeteria with menus prepared in the kitchen.
The medical union appreciates the “prompt response” of the hospital in addressing the concerns of the group. It took a much shorter period of time to resolve the structural issues in the kitchens, compared to the one-month expected deadline.
Since 7th February, the menus have been distributed under the ‘cold line’ model and prepared in the cafeteria, with doctors being provided with microwaves to heat the food. Numerous complaints have been lodged concerning the poor quality and small quantity of the products.
