We are in the process of buying a house in san fulgencio.  I understand there are medical facilities there but can anyone please tell me if they have any English speaking doctors there. I have various health issues I need help with. Thank you.

You will be allocated a Doctor so there is no guarantee you will get an English speaking Doctor. If you are not allocated an English speaking Doctor then you will need to take a Translator with you to your appointments. Hope all goes well for you 🤞

Well, I believe at San Fulgenico they do try to put the English speaking patients with the doctor who speaks English. They are most accomodating there.

When we lived in Cabo Roig the medical centre there also had the same procedure.

No way do Cabo Riog try that hard, we ended up with the worst Doctor in the MC one of the reasons why we are leaving Spain.

If you use the private clinic on Calle Madrid, they speak pefect English. If you use the council clinic by the old police station, it's a case of taking a chance. This is Spain, so you shouldn't expect anyone to speak English.

Neither do they try that hard in Guardamar either. We have to take a translator even for something as basic as a repeat prescription otherwise the doctor won’t see you. Doctors do tend to move around quite a bit as well,  especially with last years shake up in District 22.

Are you moving from elsewhere in Spain or are you having to register your S1
