Hopefully someone will come along with some information about a local GP, but in case you need it, as someone who also has ongoing conditions, the nearest public hospital is outside of Marbella towards Fuengirola.

There is a link in top questions to lots of info on the use of the EHIC card (although I'm assuming as you are checking on local health facilities that you have your valid EHIC and relevant travel insurance inc pre-existing conditions - although you'd be surprised how many don't).

Like ceejay, I know the big USP hospital on the main road. If you were standing at Skol with the sea BEHIND you, walk up to the Main Street Av Ricardo Soriano. Turn right and just keep walking along this main road, it's name changes to Severa Ocha (sp?) and the USP is on your right. You should be able to google map it.

I've no idea where or which GP you wold use, but if you are concerned, I'd check with whoever you are renting from.

And as ceejay says, do not rely on your EHIC, make sure you have good travel insurance.

catt:

You can ask the hotel for a recommendation of a doctor. Most hotels will have lists of doctors who speak English.
