If you qualify for free health care in Spain, you should use the GP service at the Centro de Salud and, if necessary, the doctor at the Centro de Salud will refer you to a specialist at another location. If you have a Spanish SIP card you can make an appointment online at this page and a new app called GVA +Salut for your phone which makes it even easier. Further to this you can use the app at the farmacia instead of the paper sheet to get prescriptions. Just scan your prescription sheet into the app. It will then post reminders to your calendar when you are due medication as well as information on the drugs you are taking and allow you to get prescriptions without the paper. If you are a visitor to Orba, remember to take your EHIC card and passport with you if you attend the Health Centre, and if you do not speak any Spanish you should take a translator with you. If the visit is not urgent you will have to complete forms and will be issued with a temporary SIP card, and you may have to return the following day for the appointment and to collect the card. Two useful books can be bought at The Corner Shop in Orba which give more information on medical and other issues - 1) Help? 2) Tell the Doctor.
