DESPITE the drop in attacks on doctors seen throughout 2015 in Malaga, there has been a substantial increase in the number of reports of medical malpractice. There were 641 accounts registered in 2015, 16 more than the previous year with general surgery, traumatology, gynaecology and obstetrics being among the main culprits.
