First port of call for any medical attention is your local Healthcare Centre (Ambulatorio) where there is generally a 24-hour emergency department available should that be necessary.

But, for non-emergency treatment simply go along and make an appointment to see your G.P. If your doctor decides there is a need for further specialist attention or tests (and you are resident in one of Málaga´s coastal towns) then you’ll usually be sent to the Costa del Sol Hospital in Marbella.

This is a modern hospital with a very good reputation. I know personally a number of people who have passed through its doors and all of them vouch for the quality of efficient and professional care they received.

In fact, I’ve never heard anyone criticize either the staff or the treatment received since it opened over twelve years ago. As you would expect with such a high percentage of foreign residents living here on the coast the benefits from a devoted group of voluntary interpreters, who have actually been recognised by the Junta de Andalucía for the quality of service they provide.

Malaga, being the capital of the province, is also well supplied with some excellent social security hospitals. You may hear about the Hospital Clínico Universitario based by the University Campus on the Campillos Road … and the Carlos Haya complex which is situated throughout the Malaga area.

Please note that children are attended at the Materno Infantil Hospital which belongs to the Carlos Haya Group.

So, what I’m saying is please be assured when you’re living in Spain that you will not have to compromise on healthcare. The health service here is good and improving all the time.
