Introduction: health as a factor of physical, mental and community wellbeing
At the Castelló d’Empúries Town Council, we believe that the overall concept of health includes much more than the simple definition of a ‘health care issue’. We feel that health is the balance between an individual and his environment. Health, besides being a factor of cohesion and human progress, is a universal right that requires protection and promotion by public administrations such as ours. Therefore, we truly believe that access to basic health services and health care practitioners must be free, fair and universal. Likewise, efficiency, effectiveness and equality are three basic conditions of our municipal health care policy in order to –amongst other aspects- obtain the optimisation of the economic resources destined for health.
What do we offer?
At the Public Health Department of the Castelló d’Empúries Town Council, we understand that competencies as regards the health of the population in our municipality are assumed by the Generalitat de Catalunya, through its health care system (Catalan Health Services); or in other words, through the Castelló d’Empúries Primary Care Centres, which are divided into two different centres: the PCC – historic centre and the PCC – Empuriabrava). Nevertheless, from the local administration that we represent, we also make every effort to apply every measure that we have within our reach to support and improve this health care service for citizens.
