Services Available– Medical Appointments

Going to see your doctor can be a worrying time for you, be it for your annual check up, or for something a bit more serious.  It only adds to that worry if you don’t understand what is being said to you.
Let me help you with that.  Fifteen years experience as an interpreter in the hospital allows me to ask the questions you might not have thought of and to explain, in a sensible way, the diagnosis medication or paperwork you need to aid you on the road to recovery.
I don’t charge by the hour and my fee is reasonable.
Do call me if you have any questions.

All formatting, pretty colours, bold, underlining, strange fonts etc are automatically removed.

Please – Don’t use all Block CAPITALS LIKE THIS or I may have to send it back for you to put into normal case (This is the way people normally write, with capital letters where appropriate – such as “I” and place names “Malaga”, makers’ names such as “Electrolux”,    days of the week “Monday”

Please don’t send PDFs or Word documents.

Your email address must be quoted in this forrmat…I insert spaces within the address so that nasty software can’t steal their address for spam purposes – e,g, my address is correctly   janekirkspain@gmail,com

if it were a Contributor’s address I’d insert spaces thus –

janekirkspain @ gmail,com.

So all you do is remove those spaces before contacting a contributor. 

New Rules for Blog

The rules for Blogs have changed and it now means that I could face a fine if I publish any negative reviews of any person or company – even though it may be true or half true.
