Air Conditioning: I’d like to sing the praises of Mark Rawlins at Esola Air Conditioning. Just over two years after fitting my aircon it developed a problem. Despite being a few months out of warranty, Mark and team arrived promptly, tested the faulty unit over several days and repaired it free of charge! They also replaced the brackets for free on a following visit as they had gone rusty prematurely. Top service and top people. I can’t recommend them highly enough. Thank you Mark and Esola! http://esola.online/

Doctor Appointment Replies:
#1. Hi Valerie. I finally got there with the help of a friend – here goes
(I believe there are other access routes from phones etc)
scroll over heading “Servicios y Tramites”
click on “cita en centro sanitarios”
click on “Datos personales”
enter your medical card number AN——– type in your DOB (ignore the pull down screen)
click “Acceder” type in the I/D no. you have always used ie NIE
then on TIPO scroll down to Tarjeta de Extranjero click on Acceder and up comes appt times and dates.
Good luck, it works. Mave, Competa; mave moore @ y mail .com

#2 & 3. The very easy way is to download the app “SaludResponde” to your phone
You put in your details once and then just go into the app and make an appointment each time. VERY simple.
You can add multiple people as well
You can make appointments for the nurse OR the doctor and others too
Kind regards, Steve Harding, Torre del Mar; steve.jd.harding @ g mail .com
Almost identical submission also sent in by Becky, Canillas de Albaida

#4. Hi, I think I can help. Do you have a smartphone or tablet? Look for an app called “Salud Responde”. In this app you need to enter your card details and can even put a pic of yourself. You can add your family members too. In this app you can make appointments with your doctor or nurse. See a calendar with dates available and you choose the date best for you, then a list of times comes up to choose from. After you confirm the appointment you want there is a button to add it to your calendar.
There is also other information available in the app and you may schedule blood draws at the hospitals, but you need the code from your doctor to enter the blood draw area.  Good luck!! Debi, Puerto de la Torre, debi dob do @ yahoo . com

#5. Hi I am not making an appointment today however I have just looked at the new website and it looks very similar to before, so here goes
1. Click on this link (Link gave me an “insecure connection” error message. -Ed.)
2. Then click on the purple writing “clic salud+”
That then take you to the medical options page. If it is an appointment with a doctor you require click on the right hand side of the page where it ‘s headed “salud” with the heart sign. The first option is the the one you want “datos basicos de salud” that then opens another page with the words “datos personales” on the bottom left hand side.
3. The next page shows “Datos de Administrative” and “Datos de Contacto”
4. Click on “Datos de Administrative” and a sub heading opens where the bottom line reads “Datos Personales” click on this.
5. this is a link to the page where you enter your personal identification number for the centro de salud. There is a small down arrow at one point where you can choose NIE or Passport number.
Datos administrativos: https://www.juntadeandalucia.es/servicioandaluzdesalud/clicsalud/pages/anonimo/personales/datosadministrativos.jsf  Sorry this took so long I was out today. Best of luck. Cathy, cathy . caldwell @talk 21 .com
