The waiting lists are the escape valves before a system that does not give more of itself. There is a shortage of professionals. Bad pay.

A problem that is difficult to solve and that you have to face up to and act with courage and determination.On this occasion we have brought together a group of speakers, heads of services from the specialties that suffer the most from waiting lists, who will tell us how the pressure was care, in their respective services, before the pandemic and how it has affected waiting lists.
