Expat Forum – living in Spain
When you first make the move out there, it must be tough if you’re not fluent in Spanish & none of the locals speak English. It can be fun trying to communicate over buying bread & cheese. But it is a lot more frustrating sorting out the more important matters like taxes, education and health.
The expat websites list out a number of doctors’ sites who can be contacted remotely for help. They may never be contacted, but it’s of great comfort to know they are there to fall back on.
Over time other “remote” health services will emerge as telemedicine & internet based services become more mainstream.
Local language should not be a barrier when the internet has the facility to provide all the services a person may need.
