Canaries lead way with electronic prescriptions

THE Canaries' Health Service is, in some areas, streets ahead of many other parts of Spain.

True, there are still reasons not to be entirely satisfied with it. But for over five years, patients have been able to get a single electronic prescription, valid for three months.

It can be used at any chemist in the region to collect prescription medications. And since its launch, more than 200 million e-prescriptions have been issued.



Fluent in Spanish and having spent 16 years on the island, Pamela Stocks has now been translating, researching and publishing information on customs and events in Tenerife for 25+ years. This takes a considerable amount of time and effort, for which she receives no payment whatsoever. If you find this work useful or interesting, please buy her a coffee. Buy Pamela Stocks a Coffee
