Well Folks,

First and foremost, welcome to my Blog. If you havent seen many blog posts from me then that’s because I don’t really write as much as I would like to. Being committed to my work, my family and my sports means that that most of the time there are just not enough hours in the day!

But anyway, here we are. The reason for today’s blog is with regards to something that I have been speaking about on The Journal Facebook page for quite some time. The Camposol Health Clinc that has recently opened at the Camposol Business Centre on A Sector on Camposol, invited me to a meeting as they had some information that they wanted to share with residents of Camposol, Mazarron County Club and people in the surrounding villages.

As you most of you will be aware, The Camposol Health clinic is a privately run clinic. It is staffed by a GP, a nurse and a physiotherapist which means that it is equipped to deal with 99.9% of the day to day needs of it patients.

Private clinics tend to have a certain stigma attached to them in that they are expensive to use due to high initial consultation fees and expensive charges for prescriptions, injections blood-tests etc.

With this in mind Camposol Health Clinic have set up a membership scheme for local residents. For 12€ per month or 20€ per couple, members can consult the GP or Nurse as many times as they need. Members will also benefit from generous reductions in the cost of Physiotherapy treatments. It is important to note that while the monthly membership includes unlimited consultations with the GP or Nurse, treatments such as Cardiograms, Vaccinations and prescriptions are still charged, albeit at a discounted rate of 50%.

The Doctor also mentioned that a common problem she encounters is that many people using the public Spanish healthcare system are potentially not being sent to hospital by their GP for further tests or treatment when perhaps they should be. If under any circumstance Doctor Maria Garcia has any concerns about a patients welfare, then she states that she will have no qualms in sending her patients directly to the hospital.

Below is copy of the document that I was given by the Doctor outlining the various prices and treatments. Please note the the list of treatments is not exhaustive, but is there as a guide to the prices of many day to day treatments.

For more detailed information  please call 968 103 008 or directly at the reception of the Business Centre, Sector A.

I hope that it is of interest to the community. I would like to state that while the Camposol Health Clinic advertises in The Journal, I am in no way affiliated with the Clinic, nor do I endorse any of the information that they have provided. My family and I use the Spanish Health System and we have always found it to be good. Our use and experience of it has mainly been limited to the birth and subsequent paediatric care of our son and we have no complaints. That being said, I know many people living locally who are not on the Spanish Healthcare system and hope that this will give them an affordable way to ensure that they get the very best in healthcare.

For any more information on this, please contact the Camposol Business Centre or call them on 968 103 008. Also please feel free to leave feedback about this Blog on our Facebook page.

Kind regards,

Robert Rutherford
