Depends whether you are part of the state system or private.  Also whether you are resident or a visitor.  Your question as it stands is rather broad.

Very true about it being broad but to narrow it down registering a S1 so will be resident and state system

So in that case you normally don't get much choice.  You register at the medical centre that covers your address.  In our case Vera was our medical centre.

You will need to register your S1 with the nearest INSS office (for us that was Huercal Overa) SJLT may be a different office (I'm not sure).

If you're taking regular meds I would go to the medical centre and see if you can register with them, prior to the INSS visit.  You will likely need to take an interpreter if your Spanish is not up to it.  The one thing that is the same the world over is the receptionist 五五五

Good luck and hope you have many happy and healthy years in Spain.  Regards Karen

Dr's receptionist's are a breed of their own I think it must be a calling as no amount of training can make you like that but thanks for the advice I'm hoping our S1's have been pre registered with the INSS but will check to make sure and yes hopefully many happy and healthy year's to come once again thank's for your advice

I think you are tarnishing all doctors receptionist unnecessarily the same. My wife is a doctors receptionist and is treated abominably by rude patients who selfishly care only about themselves. Many times she has considered taking other jobs but care s too much about the patients who are genuinely nice people themselves!

You would need to go to Pulpi to register, if you are not fluent I suggest you take a translator. SJDLT has a small medical centre open a couple of days but more in summer. 

Pulpi is quite difficult to get an appointment by telephone!

Unfortunately I don't but perhaps put another post up here because I have seen recommendations before. 

If you have Facebook there are local sites on there too who might help. 

Hope you get some responses!
