Podcast - Healthcare on the Costa del Sol

Podcast Episode 1 – Choosing a Health Professional

Our very first episode! And what better way to start than with how to choose the right person in the first place?

This episode is roughly based on my article for the Euro Weekly News called 5 Tips for Choosing a Health Professional and also based on an article our consultant orthopaedic surgeon Dr Jyri Lepisto, wrote some time ago called “10 Tips for choosing a surgeon“.

I wanted to take a broad look at how to find the right health professional for you in the South of Spain so I’m chatting to Emmie about some key things to look for before you book as well as good signs you are in the right place once you arrive!

Important links –
Check that your Physiotherapist / Osteopath / Chiropractor is registered with the Colegio de Fisioterapeutas de Andalucia – https://www.colfisio.org/
ALL Doctors must also be registered with the Colegio de Medicos – https://www.cgcom.es/colegios
Podiatrists also have a colegio – https://www.colegiopodologosandalucia.org/inicio/index.php
Side note – Lawyers and architects also have Colegios. This is basically a professional body which gives you the consumer protection from bad practice. 

There’s also more information about the process of working as a physiotherapist in Spain in this article
