If You Are Feeling Under the Weather
If you do feel under the weather then your first port of call should be the local chemist (farmacia)
- there are several in the area, all marked on the map.
All are helpful and speak good English and they will usually advise a remedy, or if a visit to the doctor is necessary.
If you are covered by holiday or private insurance for medical treatment, then one of the private
surgeries is the place to go.
Do keep all your receipts for medical treatment and medication to enable you to make an insurance claim on your return home.
The National Health clinic (Ibsalut) is situated in Calle dels Molins and you can receive treatment
there if you have a European Health Card which replaced the old form E111.
Take the original form and a photocopy of it, as well as your passport with you. Telephone number 971 587 191.
If you require an ambulance in an extreme emergency then ring the police on 092 or the Helpline on 112
and they will make the arrangements.
You may well be asked to pay the cost of the ambulance when it arrives, so make sure you have some cash available.
