If you've got private travel insurance probably better than here in the UK.

As long as you have been up front with your travel insurance you will be covered and looked after.

3. Re: Emergency health care

My wife was delighted with the care and attention she received a few weeks ago (it was a Sunday) at the medical centre in Golf del Sur. I ventured along to the chemist's there first, wondering if someone could advise on a medicine that might ease her pain.

Twenty minutes later my wife was being seen by a women doctor there, assisted by an English nurse. No real emergency this, but a worrying time for Mrs BT all the same.

This is no guarantee of the treatment a stroke patient might receive there, of course, merely an indication that the medical team at Golf del Sur is capable of inspiring confidence when it is most needed.

I am always a little bit concerned no matter where we go as my husband had a heart attack in our home in N. Ireland 7 years ago. He was in hospital and treated with a blood thinning drug within 20 mins .Considering we live 13 miles away it was excellent service and probably saved his life ,so as a precaution I always key the countries emergency number into my phone and make sure of the address where we are staying.

Sounds a bit morbid but it gives me peace of mind and only takes a minute to do.
