In Praise of the Spanish Health Service
(San Pedro de Alcantara)
I feel that I must put into words the praise I have the Ambulatory at San Pedro de Alcantara. Having had a very bad fall on to my face, my husband took me to the
‘Urgenca’ there, in under 2 minutes I was seen by a medic who cleaned, bandaged
and gave me medication, then gave me a tetanus injection.
I was then seen by a doctor, who gave me a thorough physical examination to make sure there was nothing broken or that I had sustained concussion. All in all a fast and comforting experience, that ended up with written instruction (in English) as to what I
should, and should not do. I wish I could say that in England I would have received such IMMEDIATE attention
Many thanks to the Spanish Health service, Bravo
Desiree A. V. Bishop, a grateful patent.
