On 25 April, a group of Swedish students from Vimmerby University took part at an information session at Barcelona Hospital, where they were welcomed by the President of the Espriu Foundation, Teresa Basurte. The group, made up of 20 Medical Secretariat students and lecturers, had the chance to learn at first hand about how the hospital works, the co-operative structure of Scias, the hospital’s owner, and its interrelationship with the Autogestió Sanitària co-operative, together with which it makes up Grup Assistència.
