Sewing Machine Repair: I have a Bernina sewing machine which, for anyone who sews, knows it is the Rolls Royce of machines! Mine in Nerja is a ‘Record’ and about 40 yrs old. It works fine but there is something wrong with the bobbin winder which I don’t know how to fix. Does anyone know someone/somewhere I can get it mended reasonably nearby, but more importantly who is reliable. Many thanks. Diane.

Long Lines For Health Care May be Far Longer Than Previously Admitted:
The new regional government run by the Partido Popular-Ciudadanos centre-right coalition has accused the previous Socialist-run Andalusian authority of hiding the true extent of health service waiting lists in official figures.
Regional Health minister, Jesús Aguirre, said on Tuesday that at the end of last year there were 843,538 people waiting for an operation or a specialist appointment with the SAS (Andalusian health service), 548,000 more than the figure offered by the previous government!
Of those half a million “hidden” patients, nearly 100,000 are in the province of Malaga. The Health Department’s delegate for this area, Patricia Navarro, said on Wednesday that in June last year, the Socialist government reported just under 60,000 people on waiting lists in the province, whereas the real figure offered by the new government is more than 156,000.
