While it may seem shocking at first, the devolution of powers over health matters to the state is one of the fundamental approaches Vox faces in the upcoming 28M election. The formation led by Santiago Abascal, which has already proposed the issue in the context of the 2019 Generals, has not abandoned defending the concept in a commitment that is clearly autonomous in nature.
Although various regional groupings of Vox include proposals for autonomous health services, it is clear that the general proposal for this political formation is to return to the previous model established in 2003 generally for the whole country.
Other ideas that are raised within the training framework program focus specifically on prevention, thus calling for a national health program that “pays special attention” as well as a “single health card, management comprehensive wait list and a national portfolio of services”.
In this sense, they also advocate that “Spanish health should in any case attend all Spaniards and legal residents and anyone in a critical emergency”, although they remember that Spain is “not the hospital of the world”. It is possible”.
On the other hand, they propose investment and reinvigoration of health expenditure. “New primary and outpatient care centers should be opened in the most deprived areas of inland Spain and large cities. Furthermore, the adequacy of means in our hospitals should be reviewed and the establishment of a minimum number of primary care centers per inhabitant to guarantee that all Spaniards are treated when they need it and under equal conditions, ”he says.
Another issue included in its program is “the suppression of non-health surgical interventions from the public health (sex change, abortion, euthanasia, etc.) and to include oral services.”
They also propose the creation of a “National Plan” for the prevention, care and treatment of mental health disorders. Promotion of medical research regardless of commercial profitability, for example, rare diseases. Defense of the culture of life and the family against those who promote the culture of death”.
