British expats are being invited to a series of public meetings to find out more about how to register correctly for state healthcare in Spain. The events are part of a campaign launched by the UK Department of Health and the Valencia Health Authority to help British residents understand what their UK-issued European Health Insurance Cards can, and cannot, be used for.

Martyn Standing of the Department of Health team in Alicante said “These events are a must for anyone who wants to get the information on EHIC cards straight from the horse’s mouth. We’ll be telling people why and how they should register for healthcare whilst living in Spain, and explaining the correct use of UK-issued EHIC cards for British visitors.”

All are welcome to attend the meetings and there’s no need to register beforehand.

There’s also more information for residents of the Valencia region on a new website, www.healthcareinspain.eu<http://www.healthcareinspain.eu> .

Health officials are planning a series of meetings in the coming months, and have already held two events in Denia and Orihuela Costa. The EHIC campaign, funded by the European Union, is an innovative partnership between national British and regional Spanish government authorities.

Current child abuse scandals are opening wounds for Costa Blanca restaurateur Richard (Mickey Finn). The owner of La Zenia’s American Bar has battled demons after years spent in a children’s prison in Ireland.

As a 12-year old child he was sentenced to three years hard labour for what would now be considered minor misbehaviour.

For the immoral Christian Brothers who managed the detention centre it was safe from prying eyes. Youngsters, many of them orphans were at the mercy of a coven of depraved monastic brothers.

Mickey, and hundreds of boys who passed through this den of degeneracy, were routinely physically, sexually and mentally abused. Ireland’s judicial system was responsible for providing a steady supply of child victims.

With Taliban-like zeal Christian Brothers routinely administered life-threatening beatings on a whim. Many such acts were witnessed by fellow brothers and terrified children.

Ghost writer Michael Walsh, who ghosted Mickey’s book Still Running, was often distressed as he set down the author’s recollections. “There were times when I had to walk away from my keyboard; I needed space to compose myself,” he says.

The children’s labours were invariably accompanied by kicking, beatings and constant demands that they work harder. 147 children died at Letterfrack; untold numbers simply disappeared.

Michael Walsh is urging victims of institutionalised violence to get in touch. For Mickey, telling his story opened wounds but were therapeutic in that it allowed him to confront his ghosts and come to terms with his abusive past.
