Reviews

We were very impressed on arrival at Villa Nueva as it was so clean and everything was provided. The welcome pack of food was also a nice touch and was well received after a long journey. The villa itself had so many extras not provided by other villas/apartments we previously booked, especially in the kitchen. We could not fault it at all and had a wonderfull stay. When we had to contact you concerning the pool, we had someone at the door within an hour to sort it out which was very impressive. Your company Optima are certainly the best company we have dealt with in years regarding holiday accommodation. We would definitely book here again, many thanks for making it a great and memorable holiday for us.

Healthcare in Playa Blanca

Healthcare and Medical Services in Playa Blanca

Before You Travel – EHIC Card

As Lanzarote is part of the European Union, you will be covered for basic, public health care treatment with the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC). This means that if you fall ill on holiday and need to use the public health service, your access to assistance will be the same as it would be for any resident of the island.

Ehic helath card

To apply for an EHIC you should visit the following web page:

http://www.nhs.uk/NHSEngland/Healthcareabroad/EHIC/Pages/about-the-ehic.aspx

It is best to use the NHS website for the application as other websites may charge you for the form.

You will need to make separate applications for each individual, including children. You are advised to have an EHIC even if you have a separate travel insurance policy. Each EHIC is valid for five years.

In Spain, local residents contribute between 10% – 60% of the costs of their medical prescriptions, so you will find that you will be required to do the same at the chemists.

If you need to see a doctor or attend a local hospital you will receive what is termed ‘medically necessary’ treatment – i.e. x-rays and stitches, prescriptions, etc.

To see a doctor in Spain’s health service, you will need to visit the Centro de Salud, which is on the Avenida el Varadero, just 20 metres from the Optima Estates office.

You should take your passport and EHIC with you and you will need to give the address you are staying at.

The receptionist will ask you to fill out a form giving details such as name, address, etc. You will then either be told to wait to see the doctor or given an appointment to attend later in the day or on a subsequent day, depending on how busy it is.

Lanzarote Public Healthcare

The main hospital on the island is located just on the outskirts of the capital, Arrecife. If you are taken there for treatment, you may be admitted to the accidents and emergencies department.

Most of the staff here do not speak English but they will be courteous and treat you in the same way as a local patient. You will need your EHIC if you are admitted to hospital.

You should also be aware that unless an ambulance has been requested to take you to hospital by a doctor or member of the emergency services, you will incur a charge for this transport.

Private Medical Care

Given that the main hospital is some distance from Playa Blanca, many tourists who need to see a doctor prefer to use one of the private surgeries that can be found in the resort for immediate attention.

As these are private clinics you will have to pay to see the doctor as well as for any prescriptions or treatments given to you. The range of treatments they can cover include cardiology, paediatrics, general practice and gastroenterology.

The Dr Mager Clinics are run by a team of medical professionals, all of whom speak English. Seeing the doctor is by a previously arranged appointment at one of their clinics, but they will also make house visits, if needed.

In Playa Blanca, the Dr Mager Clinic is in Avenida El Varadero. This is the road that runs down from the main roundabout at the entrance to Playa Blanca towards the sea and the pedestrian shopping street – Calle Limones - where the tourist information office is located.
