Help Benidorm has aquired Oxygen Concentrator for short term loan so visitors no longer need to hire one at great expense

Following several requests from people coming on holiday to Benidorm for an oxygen concentrator and the fact that it had to be hired at great expense to take sick people back to the UK.To hire one commercially it is about 450 euros a week with a 1,300 Euro deposit. We have decided to purchase our own machine for short term loan. It is a Respironics Evergo and is dual use either portable or mains operated for use overnight. Our nurse Jackie will supply it with all accessories. If anyone needs to loan it please call her on +34 607 386 964 or leave a message on our contact page.

Booking Doctors Appointments Prescription Changes

There is a very simple App available to book non-urgent doctors appointments

It is called GVA +Salut. and is available on Google Play store free

It is only available in Spanish and Valenciano but is very easy to use.

You will have to protect it with a PIN. Then you can add up to 4 users. All you need to do is put in the last 7 numbers of the SIP and date of birth dd/mm/yyyy.

Then click on Solicitar Nueva Cita. Request New Appointment. It will give you dates available for your doctor or nurse and you click on the time you want and confirm.

The nurse appointments may not be suitable for procedures such as injections and dressings and blood tests.

You can see upcoming appointments and cancel them if you need to.

You no longer need to collect your prescription within 10 days of the date on the calendar, as the calendar system has been abolished. Any medication can be picked up from 2 weeks before the due date up until the end of the prescribed period.
