All sorts of problems that we have come up against since being in Spain, only wish we had become a member sooner, it would have saved us a lot of angst & money!! Thank you all.
Using the advice from this site my husband was able to register onto the Spanish health system 2 weeks ago under the pre-April 2012 residency. My turn today. I do not have a pension therefore has no P60, which my husband used for proof of income, I was told by my translator that although entitled in my own right they would probably register me as a dependent of my husband. With this in mind I photocopied all my husband’s docs again and got a joint padron. So glad I did as they wanted everything again. My husband had to sign declaration saying I was his dependent. So yippee off to the Salud tomorrow to register for my card. Thank you Myra and co. X
Thank you so much, It really is a huge help to know that people can contact yourselves and get support that certainly I would otherwise not have known about…thank you …
How easy was THAT! Just got health card re activated as persona sin recursos at INSS, been to health centre, registered, and have doc appt tom. Thank you CAB for all your info on this. Dunno what I was worrying about.
I’ll pm u but it’s likely to be 2mrw and Mxxx if it was closer to home I’d be there! Ive learnt so much from this group its kinda empowering me to challenge the bank head on and I don’t handle confrontations and don’t need more stress.

Andrea Watson 17/12/201 10/07/2016
Hello Admin I read the very good letter ‘to all members’ and thought that you should all be congratulated for the work that has been done in such a short time. Myra Cecilia Azzopardi has run this group almost singlehandedly since August when I joined too, and now with the help of her Admin Team and her volunteers she has managed to get some 4,000 members and growing. The website will be up and running soon I see, not yet though, and more and more people are joining. Remember to add all your friends so that we can have a real say to the Government on all the important issues that are brought up by our members.. Thank you from me.
Anna Tandy 16/12/2013 10/07/2016
What wonderful news, Myra Cecilia Azzopardi, you are doing so much for so many people, it is wonderful, Spain, lovely as it is, is such a nightmare and battlefield at times, it makes you wonder why but what you have set up is a major life line…
Lesley Draper 17/12/2013 10/07/2016
Myra you are amazing to have managed to do this.
Louise Fenton 17/12/2013 10/07/2016
Myra we are so very, very grateful for all your help today. It has been the most awful experience, and we were so very frightened of what could be wrong with John. You are just absolutely amazing, you have such strength and conviction that it will make all of us fight for our rights. Also just caring when others need help boosts morale. This is a wonderful site and it’s all down to you. I am so proud to know you, and love you for what you are doing. Thank you so much from us both and our daughter Kelly XX
Jan McNaughton 18/12/2013 10/07/2016
Myra & Maria, We are so grateful to you both, now go do the Christmas celebrations and enjoy yourselves. Have a really good time, stop worrying about everyone, you need the break. You are all doing a fantastic job and I think I can say from us all, we are so proud of you. Happy New Year 2014.

Flavoursofjamaica Ja 17/12/2013 10/07/2016
Must say a quick thanks to Myra and Co for advice re British passport renewal from Spain, followed the links, sent off the form, passport, sent and back in 14 days. The most amusing part was you have to send it to Belfast, the new e passort came to Spain from Middlesex, and if there were any errors you had to return it to Northampton, if so the passport would be better traveled than me!!! Feliz Navidad.
Brian Huggins 20/12/2013 10/07/2016

Myra and her team have helped me with invaluable practical /legal advice on many levels in the past few months, enabling me to wade through the minefield of red tape and often ignorant local officials (as in lack of up to date information on the rights/procedures for foreign residents), with ease. I only have praise for her and her whole-hearted commitment to this site. P.S. Merry Christmas to you XX

I have only recently joined this group and have to say I am astounded by the commitment of the advisers on here and in particular Myra who is clearly on her vacation but still takes so much time for any queries in here. What a fabulous service this is. Wishing you all a very merry Christmas and a peaceful new year.
Jayne Middleton 22/12/2013 10/07/2016
Merry Christmas to everyone involved in this group, I hope you will all spread the word during the new year so that Myra and her “elves” may help even more members to stand their ground, and fight for their rights. Carry on the good fight.
