Since June, the auxiliary medical centres set up by the Dénia Health Authority (DSD) in different municipalities across the Marina Alta have been working at full capacity.

One of them is in Xàbia, located for the past few years in the centre of the Arenal zone in Avenida de Paris, and it will cover both residents in the area and the many visitors that come to the zone during the summer months until September 5th. Its opening hours are 10.00am to 6.00pm Monday to Friday and then 10.00am to 3.00pm on Saturday. It is closed on Sunday. The telephone number for enquiries is 96 646 71 65.
