15 new medical heliports to be built across the province

The Ministry of Health has announced plans to build 15 new heliports across the province to expand it’s heli-ambulance service.

Adra, Abla, Albox, Berja, Carboneras, María, Laujar de Andarax, Ohanes, Pulpí, Serón, Tabernas & Vera will all get new helipads.

The idea behind them is to expand coverage, allowing serious patients to be taken to local medical centres before being airlifted to regional hospitals. Seems there are five medical helicopters in this region, which are usually used to airlift critically injured patients to the nearest specialised hospital.
