It's not so long ago, last week actually, that Ibiza residents needing specialist radiology treatment

It's not so long ago, last week actually, that Ibiza residents needing specialist radiology treatment had to go all the way to Palma to be treated. Now thanks to modern technology they only need go to our very own Can Misses hospital which is linked by the wonders of the internet to Palma's specialist treatment centre.

Doctors in the two hospitals use computers for on-the-spot video conferencing and diagnoses so that the patient can be treated without the need for a time consuming and expensive journey paid for by the national health service.
