A new paediatric burns unit is to be set up in the north of Portugal as the only one available at Lisbon’s Hospital Dona Estefania is not considered to be enough.

The order was signed by the Assistant Secretary of State and Health and it is to be officially published on Friday.
The wildfires that broke out on 17 June and 15 October were taken into consideration for this order.
The order refers to the insufficient number of units for severe burns patients in the country’s hospitals. There are only five such units and have fewer beds available compared with other European countries, (one bed per 225,700 inhabitants).
