Coalition split?

Political crisis does not delay the new hospital

Coalition split - headlines in JM

Coalition split possible: there are reports in JM that, faced with a strong possibility of early elections, the desire among some of the more radical PSD (the ruling/majority party) members growing for the party to go to the vote with its candidates rather than sharing a joint platform as they have done previously. This sentiment is apparently on the ascendancy, thus the ‘PSD admits leaving the (coalition with) CDS’ is today’s headline.

‘Political crisis does not delay hospital’ is another highlight in the same newspaper, with an impressive photograph illustrating the progress being made. JM asked and the regional Finance Secretary responded, explaining what will happen about the new hospital within a management government framework pending resolution of a variety of critical matters that are now stopping progress in other areas.

The new main hospital on the island seems to be continuing to progress at pace, with the existing Dr Nélio Mendonça hospital in Funchal falling apart by the day.

A new, vastly improved “search” facility has been introduced allowing readers to search (box in the sidebar above) on any word or phrase used in any of the posts over the last sixteen years. Previously the search facility only returned matches on headings rather than the entire content. It remains to be seen whether this will slow the blog down – fingers crossed! If it works it should move the blog even further ahead of the increasing number of imitators, providing a huge resource for visitors and residents.

    • Your experience of the hospital may sadly be poor but I must say the treatment I have received over the last 30 months is far better and less stressful than I would have expected in the total defunct NHS which thanks to 14 years of Tory cuts is now on its knees and just as they planned now forcing people into the super expensive UK private health sector. At least here in Madeira even the private sector is affordable and even subsidised when you need things like MRI’s or CT scans!
