Hi, My partner and I have been coming to Spain for long periods for 2 years now to see if we would like to live here and we have decided that we would. As my partner is a below knee amputee and needs regular check-ups and such like we were wondering how good the health service here in Spain is for people who wear prosthetic limbs. Would be very grateful for any information. Many thanks.

I wouldn't know about your specific issue but, on the whole, the Spanish national health service is excellent. You don't say if you'll be on the national service - as a pensioner you ar entitled to be - but in any case I'm pretty sure it'll be OK. Maybe you should ask at your would-be local hospital before you make the final move. Good luck! _________________ Ahana - Moderator
