Baza Health Centre

Post by Lurchio on Thu May 05, 2016 6:30 pm

Hello All,

We are shortly to receive our Tarjetas Sanitaria to access the Health Service here. Is anyone registered at Baza Health Centre? We've been told that its just there for tests and referrals from local Consultarios, not a stand alone GP practice. Sounds squiffy to me, but would welcome your views and advice.

Thanks

Hi Lurchio.
The Baza health centre has an excellent number of very professional Doctors. Just register for one when you get your cards ..Its the same as all consultarios in villages around us. Same system same everything.
Maybe someone who lives in Baza can recommend a doctor in the practice. Sounds like you,ve been told an English tale about the health centre( maybe had 1 or 2 pops too many) Smile lol!

Ha, Ha, Ha Pedro!!!!! Yes, theres a lot of it about and no doubt of that. Be nice to hear from someone with a recommendation, I take it that the Consultarios are staffed (when open) by Doctors from Baza in any case, then? Very Happy

I Dont think the doctors are the same as some or most of the villages around. But stand to be corrected.
But without tempting fate the doctors are professional and good but dont expect everyone of them to speak English..As i said above someone English in Baza may be able to give you the name of a GP that may speak a little or good English .. Maybe all the Brits are so healthy in Baza you won,t hear nowt. lol! Not sure. Pedro

This is something I've wondered about. I've been told that to get a university degree in Spain, it's obligatory to have a competence of a "foreign language" (i.e. english) in order to graduate.

Yes, well we shall see. Typical Spain, our cards arrived this morning........ made out with the correct Christian Names / NIE's / Dates of birth BUT the surname on the documents and cards is WILLIANS! Can you guess our proper name??????????? Doh!
And yes, our applications and all supporting documents were in the correct name.

Heh. It's probably easier and faster to change your name than to get that corrected.  (Maybe that's how David_Walliams got to be who he is)

Slightly off the topic of doctors, but maybe of interest:
a) the B1 level in a foreign language doesn't need to be in English. It often is, but French and German are also popular.
b) Obtaining Level B1 doesn't mean that you can speak the language very well - enough for basic interactions but probably not for more involved communication. (My Spanish level is - apparently - B2 and it's nowhere near good enough to communicate effectively). Spanish people who really want to use their English in a workplace setting need C1 at least.
