Top marks

As I was dealing with the bird in the lounge I got a text message telling me that I was entitled to a free flu injection at the Health Centre.

"Si tiene 60 o mas años acuda a vacunarse gratuitamente contra la gripe a su Centro de Salud. Es una recomendacion de la Conselleria de Sanidat."

Top marks first of all for offering free flu jabs to over 60s and secondly for sending text messages to eligible people. I am most impressed and will definitely take up the offer.

I have to say that, in our experience, the health service here in Spain seems to be infinitely better than the beleaguered National Health Service in the UK.
