We had my daughters hospital appointment today (nowt serious) and I have to say that I wasnt impressed. Its been said on the forum and other places that the Spanish hospitals and the system here is infinately better than the UK, maybe I went there on a bad day, but I found it horrendous and not very efficient. Our appointment time in outpatients was 5.38pm as was half of Málagas. The place was heaving and we had to queue for what seemed like eternity to "book in", the receptionist was rushing around doing other stuff and was therefore a bit "curt" to say the least and had no time to listen to my broken Spanish. She snatched the booking sheet out of my hand and then moved on to the lady behind me. So we went and sat down in a grubby corridor, no windows or ventilation with probably 40 or more people and waited..... and waited. We were finally called in at 7pm. The doctor was pleasant enough, altho again, the room wasnt particularly "hi tech" or clean, anyway he examined Ruby and gave us a prescription. I'm disillusioned!?
