They occupied the premises of the Soccavo center for eating disorders to protest against the cut in services. Since late morning today, 19 October, a dozen patients have taken possession of the equipped kitchen of the ASL Napoli 1 facility in via Adriano, in Soccavo. The police also intervened on the spot.
These are women suffering from food-related diseases, such as anorexia, who for almost a year have been complaining of the worsening of care in a center that until recently was considered a flagship.
The protest is linked to two aspects. The first concerns the progressive reduction of personnel specialized in eating disorders. Already some time ago, Napolitoday had collected the patient of patients who had seen the time lengthen from one visit to the next.
The second aspect concerns a loan of about 300 thousand euros from the Campania Region for the construction of a semi-boarding house. Money that has been spent, however, on other things. Federconsumatori repeatedly asked ASL Napoli 1 and the local health district what was financed with regional funds, without receiving an answer. The demonstrators asked to speak with the director general of the ASL Ciro Verdoliva.
