Interpreter: Fifteen year as a volunteer interpreter in Velez hospital and ten years more working with patients and clients privately, I have the knowledge to fill in the gaps in yours. Most doctors speak a little English, but they prefer you to have a interpreter with you. The risk of misunderstanding, or of being misunderstood is too great. and having a third party along is reassuring. After having seen the doctor, I will go over all that you will need, re. Medication, paperwork, revisions etc. So that you are left in no doubt as to your next move. Help with NIE, Residencia and health card . Or just information. My mobile is always on, unless I’ve dropped it in the bath !! Pamela. 609040709 pamelawalshe@hotmail.com

Service Wanted, Mens Health Check: Can anyone recommend somewhere in Torre del Mar that would do a complete Mens Health Check (who speak English), which could possible include a body scan. We realise that we will have to pay for such a service, and would also consider going outside of Torre if we felt the recommendation would be right for us? Many thanks. (This is probably of wide interest, so send replies to digamextra@protonmail.com Answers will appear in Recommendations section.-Ed.)

Rules & Regulations:

The blog and it’s readership are growing, and I anticipate a big readership jump in the high-season. These updated rules are necessary to keep it manageable.

Send in your text & photos- The address for your submissions is digamextra@protonmail.com The Deadline is 4pm. 1 pic per item or event only. Maximum 3 For Sale items per day. Include all sale items/pics for that day in single email.
Photos- Please name your photo files appropriately before sending them in. It is difficult for me to sort thru all my downloaded daily pic files if they all have names like “image001.jpg”. I won’t reject poorly named pics, but some cooperation here would save me a lot of time. JPEG or JPG format only.
Keep Submissions as short as possible- If you have more than a paragraph of text content just submit a short description and a link to a site where interested readers can find it. No reason for me to print what is already available with just 1 click of a link.
Re-submissions- What’s On events may post once a week, Services Offered once a month. Sale items previously posted must wait 1 month before re-submitting, and the price must have been lowered by at least 20%.
Put your post header in the “about” line of the email- it is difficult to sort emails with 1 word headers.
Capital Letters – Please do not include any words which you have turned into all capital letters.

Bars, Bands, Restaurants & Clubs – Please limit your entries to One per Week! I suggest you list your programme of events & send it Tue/ Wed for inclusion in the Thursday Issue. You will get better results if you give folks 2 or 3 days advance notice of an upcoming event so they can plan in advance.
Identification Information from Everyone – I will not publish your submission unless you have included your name and location. Posts for Services, Sales or Recommendations must also include contact information (phone number &/or email address).
Health Professionals- I will accept Ads for health professionals, therapies, medical treatments etc., ONLY if the person concerned provides a Licence Number to operate here in Spain, and name the issuing authority, in the text of the ad. You may offer a lecture on healing without credentials, but to offer healing as a service credentials are required.
Recommendations: I am accepting recommendations again, but only if submitter includes their own name, town and email! Anyone caught recommending themselves will be temporarily lose submission privileges.
Faulty Submissions. Incomplete submissions will be returned for correction.

DigameXtra cannot be responsible for incorrect info in reader posts or event announcements.
Anonymous submissions are unacceptable. Incomplete submissions will be returned for correction.
The decision what to post is the Editor’s. The Editor’s Decision is Final!
