Seeing a doctor in Spain?

1 answers

I've been in Spain for a couple of weeks now and everything is going great. However I think I might need to see a doctor. It's a little awkward to talk about but I think I have a urine infection. It's not too serious a problem but it could get worse if I don't get treated. I really have no idea how to go about seeing a doctor here in Spain. I have my EHIC card and university insurance, but I don't know how to find a doctor, nor what to actually say to them when I do. If anyone has any advice it would be really helpful to me!

How should I find accommodation in Sassari, Sardinia?

Hi everyone, I have got an erasmus internship in Sassari, Sardinia, starting at the start of September. I am unsure of whether or not I need to find accommodation before I go, or if it will be ok to just turn up and find something when I get there. I have looked on easystanza.it and currently there are only 3 available rooms there, so I was also wondering where else I can look to find a room? Thank you!

Hi there. Thanks for reading. I'm studying in France for a month during the summer on a language course, and am in the process of finding accomodation. I'm applying through CROUS and it's necessary that I have une attestation d'assurance habitation, which I think translates as house or contents insurance. I was wondering where I could get this type of insurance as I have no clue where to start. Thank you
