A second oncologist, Dr. Blanca Sánchez, has been appointed at Can Misses Hospital in less than a month, according to the Balearic Minister of Health, Manuela García. The addition of a second oncologist demonstrates that changes are being made in the health area of the Pitiüses, especially after the new Balearic government declared the oncology service in the area as being in “very difficult coverage.” The oncologists will receive a salary supplement of €1,000 per month this year, and €1,650 from January to September 2027.
