Plan Remot Limiting Sending Ambulances To Campo

The Plan Remot entails that when emergency medical help is needed in rural areas, instead of an ambulance, a pair of medical professionals from the nearest public health centre will attend, with an elaborate first aid and diagnostic kit, to assess the situation and decide if an ambulance needs to be called out or not.

This plan Remot was paralysed in 2017, as a result of action from the unions for medical personnel involved, as the fact that they had to use their own personal vehicles (or go by bike or on foot) to visit patients in rural areas, and pay for the fuel as well, goes against the Prevention of Accidents at Work guidelines, stating that government issued vehicles, adequately equipped, should be used for this purpose. The equipment the medical personnel are carrying out weighs approximately 20 kg. The Generalitat now has reintroduced the plan, as per 1.6.2019, without prior announcement, and without the promised inclusion of government provided vehicles that the medical personnel can use.

The nurses union has denounced the plan with the Labour Inspection, like they did in 2017.

For now, the first stage of introduction of the Plan Remot includes the areas around Denia and Alcoy: Orba, Benigembla, Benimeli, Castell de Castells, Ràfol dAlmúnia, Fontilles, Vall de Laguar, Murla, Parcent, Sagra, Sanet i Negrals, Tormos, Benilloba, Alcoleja, Balones, Benasau, Benifallim, Benimassot, Facheca, Famorca, Gorga, Millena, Penáguila, Quatretondeta y Tollos, as well as other villages in the rural areas of the provinces of Valencia and Castellón.

As far as we’ve able to research, no other Autonomous Regions have intentions to install similar plans to that of the Valencian government.
