Spain - Balearics - Majorca Discussion Forum

We are travelling to majorca on sunday the 26th of july and was wondering if anyone knows of a company that supplies oxygen.My father in law as COPD and needs oxygen not all the time but for emergencies.Got a quote today for £530 :yikes for a portable one and £470 :yikes for a hotel based one.
The cost should be minimal if nothing at all if you can do it thru' a hospital over there.

If your F-I-L has a valid NHIC and can get a prescription for oxygen from his GP, it's just a case of ringing the Translators Office at Son Dureta Hospital in Palma (0034 971 175000) but you
MUST
do this
BEFORE
you travel. I *think* they can then arrange for it to be delivered to you.

You might get Jill of Sun, Sea & A&E fame. Happy hols!
