Due to thr incompetence of Torrevieja hospital we were forced to seek a second opinion from Hospital Quiron Torrevieja. They have diagnosed the problem and will be issuing a list of required prescriptions. 

Will be able to take the prescription to the centro salud and obtain a health service prescription for the same drugs. He has a chronic condition and require the drugs until the end of his life? 

Does anyone have experience of this situation please.

Yes, you can take what a specialist advises to your GP and, if the items are available on prescription and the doctor agrees you need them, they will issue a state prescription.

My wife had a private note from the chiropodist for something that cost 16 euro and we were advised to take it to the medical centre first. The receptionist dealt with it (didn't need to see a doctor) and the item was on state prescription the next day for free.

The answer is yes. I have personally done so. Ensure you take with you the full report from the private hospital including recommended medication.

That is what I thought but at the moment I am having nightmares about what could go wrong. 

Mant thanks for your help. I do not know how our doctor will react when we show her how the anxiety and panic attacks she and Torrevieja  diagnosed are in fact emphysema. So glad we went for the second opioion

Thank you again for your help.
