The new laws in force next September, cuts funding for illegal immigrants free medical care in Spain. Health professionals in Spain are registering as conscientious objectors in protest against a new law that requires them to deny treatment to immigrants.

Seems that immigrants according to the upcaming reforms if without residency cards will be refused treatment at public hospitals and health centres.

The new law is part of an austerity package introduced by Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy’s conservative government to reduce public spending to meet deficit targets imposed by Brussels.
