Patient threatened to kill doctor 

A man was arrested for threatening a doctor in a hospital in Gran Canaria.

A security guard at the hospital in Las Palmas raised the alarm as a result of the altercation which included threats to kill.

The doctor told police that, for professional reasons, he had changed the patient’s medication who argued about the decision. He then threatened to kill the doctor if he did not prescribe the old medication again.

The man, aged 51, repeated the threats when interviewed by the officers and said he would either kill or beat up the doctor.
