Alicante to set the record straight about healthcare entitlements

British Consulate in Alicante to set the record straight about healthcare entitlements
The British Consulate in Alicante will hold a ‘super surgery’ event on healthcare entitlements this spring in Orihuela Costa.  Representatives will provide thorough and up-to-date information and answer questions from British residents.  This unique initiative will be held jointly with local campaign group PUMA22 who will chair the event.
Local British residents recently voiced their concerns about healthcare, among other issues, in an open meeting in Torrevieja. Martyn Standing, advisor for the British Consulate Pensions, Benefits and Healthcare Team is familiar with the issues raised, and assures “we are aware of the stress that problems with accessing healthcare can cause.  By representing the UK Department of Health and maintaining communication with local health authorities, we have lots of relevant knowledge useful for British people in the area.”   Martyn’s team advise hundreds of people each month on healthcare issues, which can often be complex due to the region’s recent changes in legislation. 
The ‘super surgery’ event will include a presentation on healthcare topics and a question and answer session open to attendees.  There will also be an opportunity for British residents to discuss their individual cases with experts. 
More details will be available on this website nearer the time.
