The Professional Union of Doctors of Las Palmas has submitted to the Court a request for precautionary measures “unheard of part” against the Ministry of Health from the Canary Islands, the Canary Health Service and the addresses of the Health Area of Gran Canaria, Lanzarote and Fuerteventura, so that “ensure effective protection in the field of health and safety at work for health professionals” in managing the health crisis situation by the Covid-19.
This filed request does not require the hearing of the defendant due to the urgency established by the Alarm decree.
The union, affiliated with the State Confederation of Medical Unions (CESM), has filed the same complaint that the national body filed at the national level against the Ministry of Health.
Both groups state that the recommendations of the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Ministry of Health clearly explain about “the need for health professionals to be provided with a whole set of measures and elements necessary for them to carry out their work in minimum safety conditions” and also “not to be infected by patients or increase their risk, and prevent the spread of the disease. “
