Victor M - it is a few years since we went through this process but we did not pay anything, either to the doctor or the pharmacy. In fact, we went to the pharmacy on the hill down to Puerto Santiago, before we registered at the Health Centre, and asked for the medication prescribed by our UK doctor. They were happy to let us have it for the sum of Ä120 but suggested we register with the Health Centre and come back with a prescription, which is what we did. The pharmacist even offered to let us have the medication and pay for it and promised to refund the cost when we had registered and obtained the prescription. How helpful is that?
