José Luis Aparicio, the director of the Dr José Molina Orosa Hospital in Arrecife, has said that the radiotherapy unit will finally be functioning “in August or September 2023.”

work on the unit began two years ago, and it was widely expected to be working by now. However, the installation requires the approval of the Nuclear Safety Council, which is expected to take place next year. The installation and calibration of the radiotherapy machine is also required, and will need a team of experts from Gran Canaria to visit regularly.
