Can anyone tell me if they have had a  Private Prostate operation in Spain.  Approx. how much it costs.. Reason being I will have to wait past January 2019 to 'perhaps' have it done on the Spanish National health service.

Hello Bill

If you do a google search and put in ‘’Prostate operation costs Spain ’’ you might get some information, I got 6 pages. However whatever quote you get you need to double it to cover all the hidden add ons. I do believe that there may be different treatments and surgery for Prostate issues and I do not think any forum members are surgeons in this field.

If treatment is urgent you could use your EHIC in Spain and pay nothing or alternatively go back to the UK and join the NHS waiting list.

EHIC doesn't always = free treatment: https://www.nhs.uk/using-the-nhs/healthcare-abroad/apply-for-a-free-ehic-european-health-insurance-card/

Bill.  I was advised by a spanish surgeon that if one goes private and there are subsequent problems, the Spanish health service will not step in.  Thus one needs to be sure they have sufficient funds for that eventuality

John, surely you are not saying that Bill would be turned away from A&E and told to go die?

As I said, I was saying what a surgeon had told me.   I was going to pay for a breast reconstruction for a spanish friend.  It was to be a one off jesture. I decided not to go ahead   Shortly after,  my friend was called in by the health service for the operation    I believe the surgeon probably had a hand in that 

As for A&E in an emergency situation, from a best guess situation:  Life saving attention by A&E I hope it would be available,  but life saving or putting right a problem may be far apart.   In the prostrate opetation situation.  If one were left incontinent, sterile, etc. that would not be life threatening 

So Bill before opting for private, you would be wise to check if what I quoted was or was not correct

Hello John

Yes I now understand what you are saying, sorry for the misunderstanding, if you have any private surgery in Spain and it goes wrong you are on your own, state A&E will only assist if you are at deaths door, and if not won’t have anything to do with you. This has been confirmed by a Spanish registered surgeon. Do you think this statement is on the private hospitals consent form?
