I don't know about the free health care in Spain. This is the 1st time I got my S1 card & I went to the doctor to see if he can send me for the normal yearly or every 2 year tests I got in Canada.

It seems that Spain is not interested in preventive medicine or is it because I got the UK S1 card? I ask the doctor here for the normal tests I used to get in Canada & he refused, as I don`t have a piece of paper with my medical record from Canada. All he did, was to send me for a few blood tests.

My experience of medical treatment in Spain is, They are good but you really do have to let them know you need help or you will just get a prescrition, no questions asked.

As for registering, they seem to find it very difficult to do and have to phone around for help.

Canada`s health service is good, but you will find Spains is also good, despite what agrodiarrea spouts on about.
