I have just been to try to collect my health card. I registered at the local medical centre some months ago, they gave me some forms and told me to take them to another place in Sabadell (my local administrative area). I was only able to go this week, as I work and could not afford to take time off to go there. After being directed initially to the wrong place, we eventually found the right place, where they gave me another document, and said that I would not get a card but must use this document. I understood everyone has a card. I am fully resident here. Has anyone else had any experience of this?
I'm thinking of buying one of those vibration machines that you stand on. It's supposed to tense and relax the muscles I think thus strengthening them. Seen them advertised on the television but they want €800.I think that's too steep and was wondering where else I may be able to find them. Any one seen them about?Thanks in advance
I went to pick up a friend from Madrid airport a couple of days ago and there were quite a lot of people coming in with masks. Apparently a flight had just landed fom Mexico City. Are there checks for people flying in or do they just let you off the plane and you go off with no controls whatsoever? I saw that there over 50 cases of flu now in Spain
My friend has asked me to go with an acquaintance to the doctors to translate for her them as they don't speak much Spanish. Problem is, I don't know what's wrong with them and I'm very rusty on my medical terms. I don't want to take a dictionary with me as that wouldn't look very good!Does anyone know of a list of terms in Spanish and English available on-line, just so I'm prepared?Thanks in advance...Abelindaxxx
