Representatives from the British Consulate in Alicante are going to Mazarrón at the end of this month to visit British nationals there and hold an Open Day event. British Consul, Paul Rodwell said “Murcia, Mazarrón in particular, has one of the fastest growing British populations in Spain according to the latest padrón statistics.
We hope that by reaching out to this area and hearing people’s concerns, residents can obtain the information they need and be aware of what their Consulate can do for them.”
After the British Consul opens the event, the Pension, Benefit and Healthcare team will give a presentation on people’s rights to pension, benefits and healthcare here in Spain. Anyone who has any questions about these subjects, or just wants to find out if there have been any changes to the system, should find it worthwhile to attend.
The event will also be attended by the Mazarrón Town Hall representative for foreign residents, Jacqueline Gálvez. She already works closely with British residents in the area and said, “I think it is really important for people to be up to date on their entitlements here in Spain and I’m really glad that the Consulate is taking the time to visit Mazarrón.”
Following the presentation, those who want to have an individual consultation can talk to the experts about any specific problem or query they may have.
