Camposol Consultorio is pretty much a doctors surgery, with an on premise nurse. At any one time there tends to be 2 doctors and 1 nurse in the building. Basic medical problems and vaccinations can be dealt with at the surgery, and you can submit repeat prescription requests between 9:30am and midday everyday the surgery is open.
Blood tests require a pre-booked appointment and these take place from 8am on a Monday, Wednesday and Thursday. The receptionist at Camposol Consultorio does speak English, however if you are attending a doctors appointment it is recommended that you bring a translator along with you.
Residents are eligible for free medical care, provided they are registered with Padrón and are residents of Spain for more than 6 months per year. As for visitors, they also qualify for free health care, ONLY if they are in possession of a VALID EHIC card. These cards are issued to UK citizens for free and without one you will have to pay the standard €86 to see a doctor. If any additional treatment is required or you have to go to hospital, you will also be charged for these services.
It pays to be organised, so to prevent any unexpected healthy bill, please make sure you and anybody you are travelling with has a valid and in-date EHIC card. If this is not the case, please apply for one to arrive before your holiday.
