English Doctors In Tenerife

Search This Site

When I embarked on my quest to find English doctors in Tenerife, I thought there would be a whole host of them.

How mistaken was I?

Despite extensive research, I've only been able to come up with a small sample. As usual, if anyone knows of any that I've not been able to track down, please let me know, via "feedback".

Dr Karen Whittaker

Karen was an English doctor quite well known to people holidaying or living in Los Cristianos, with a surgery amongst the line of shops on the ground floor of the Arona Gran Hotel.

This page had full details of opening times and prices, etc. However, I've had to amend it as Karen appears to not be around anymore. There was also an osteopath called Lisa Harris operating on the premises and I'm unaware whether she's still there or not.

Just in case you want to try phoning the original number to check on these things, it is 922 798226.


The European Health Centre bills itself as "formerly known as the British Surgery" (which used to feature on this page) and is based in Las Americas. It offers the services of a traditional family practice, with English-speaking GP, but is also a one-day care medical centre.

Other facilities on offer are beauty care and skin specialist, a massage centre and laser teeth whitening.

It is a walk-in centre, so no appointment is necessary. Open times for this are 9am-2pm, then 5pm till 8pm, Monday to Friday and 9am-2pm Saturdays (although, sometimes, the centre is closed Saturdays). Home or hotel visits are also possible.

All EU health and travel insurance is accepted.

Dr David Robson

On trawling the internet extensively for English doctors in Tenerife, here's one name I unearthed. I don't even know if this man is English (or British), but, with a name like that, it's pretty likely.

All the information I have regarding his whereabouts is that he's based in Costa del Silencio. It's not that big a place to wander around to try and spot a doctor's surgery. The town actually has a health centre and he may be operating from there.

Best just to phone and ask for the address, I suppose.

contact details: Telephone 922 785204

Perfect Health SL

I've also come across this company, based in the Fañabe Plaza Commercial Centre in Adeje. Although their staff may not actually be English, they all speak it.

They have a nurse available Monday to Friday from 10am till 6pm and she can perform duties such as blood tests, dressings, injections and blood pressure.

A doctor is available, by appointment only. His surgery is open every Friday, from 3pm.

The man in question, Dr de la Flor, studied medicine in the USA and is likely to be fluent in English.
