This is a preview to the chapter Healthcare from the book Going Local in Gran Canaria by Matthew Hirtes.
Please note this text is copyright protected.

As a tourist, you’re entitled to free basic healthcare as received by local residents. As long as you show your EHIC (European Health Insurance Card) and passport. There are many English-speaking doctors. Your hotel will always be able to recommend one.Visitors would be well advised, however, to contact the British Medical Clinic in Puerto Rico (Avenída Roca Bosch 4; 928 56 00 16; www.
britishmedicalclinic.com). As well as offering private medical services, they provide translations of any tests you may have taken at a Spanish surgery or hospital.

For minor complaints, the local chemists (farmacias), recognisable by a green-cross sign, will stock just about anything you may require and there’s always one open after hours in each area. The location of the duty chemist’s clearly indicated on every chemist’s door.

That's the end of the free preview ...
