When To Call On Our GP Service In Marbella

home GP service marbella

With Helicopteros Sanitarios you know that you'll have access to a GP service in Marbella whenever you need it. But when exactly is the right time to call a doctor from our GP service? Here are a few potential examples:


1. If you are too ill to get to a hospital or medical centre

The most obvious time you would call on our GP service in Marbella is if you are too ill to get to a hospital or medical centre. This may be because you have a serious infection or virus that has left you feeling too weak to get up and travel, or you may have suffered an injury that has made travelling very difficult. In either situation, you can call on us and we'll make sure you get seen by a medical professional as soon as possible.


2. If you or someone you know has been ill for a few days and hasn't improved

If you've been ill for more than a week and your symptoms haven't improved it's probably time to call our GP service in Marbella. We'll send someone out to take a look at you and assess how serious the situation is. They'll also be able to tell you how best to look after yourself and what treatment you might need.


3. If you or someone you're with has fainted

Fainting can be really disorientating and can leave you feeling very confused. It could also be a sign of something more serious so it might be best not to try and travel to see your GP or doctor. It's always best to call a doctor if you've fainted just so that they can check you over and be sure that your faint wasn't because of something more serious.

4. If you've hit your head hard

If you've fallen and hit your head you should definitely call our GP service in Marbella so that we can check you over for a concussion. You definitely should not try to drive to a medical centre if you have experienced a head injury as if you are concussed this could be very dangerous.


5. If you or someone you're with has had a fall but is not seriously hurt

After a fall it's always a good idea to call our GP service in Marbella. This allows us to have a quick look at you and make sure you haven't received any injuries that you may not have noticed yourself but that could become more serious if left unchecked. If it is clear that a fall has left you more seriously injured you should call for an ambulance straight away so that you can be taken to the hospital and treated for more serious injuries and given any necessary x-rays or scans.


6. If you're struggling to breathe

If you find that you're having trouble breathing call us straight away. We'll make sure you get the help you need as soon as possible as part of our GP service.
