Public Health Centres in Andalusia

Spain’s social security system (and here, specifically, the Andalucían Health Service) has an obligation to treat anyone who needs medical attention in Spain, whether they are Spanish citizens or foreign visitors.

We list here the major hospitals and health centres in Andalucía and how you can find and seek help at health centres and clinics in the region. Citizens of the European community are covered for most forms of medical help by a convention between neighbour states that offers access to medical treatment for their citizens.

The system using the international E-111 form became obsolete in January 2006 and has been replaced by the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) which is available in your home country in the same way the E-111 form was.

Emergency services will, of course, treat anyone in any circumstance, and are obliged by law to do so, but some treatments and services may be outside the remit of the EHIC and therefore will have to be paid for later.

It is important, however, to be aware that not even the EHIC covers all medical costs, and that most countries, particularly Britain and its Foreign Office, urge travellers to buy sufficient private travel insurance to cover contingencies outside those covered by the EHIC. All reputable travel insurance companies have reciprocal agreements with overseas counterparts (BUPA, for instance, with Spanish companies such as Adeslas and Sanitas).

Most primary and minor medical services can be dealt with at a local health centre in your destination. These offer medical assistance and consultation, and can deal with emergencies that do not require hospitalisation (which will require a simple transfer to a nearby hospital). Most clinics and hospitals can offer the assistance of translators for those who do not speak Spanish, although this becomes less of an option the further you travel away from the larger centres of population.

If you find yourself in a particular serious medical emergency, call or ask someone to call the national emergency line on 061.

The hospital system is structured much in the way you will find in any capital, although there are also numerous private hospitals and specialist clinics, many of which are linked to the public health system. How you negotiate this system very much depends on each individual case.

In addition, in each city and town and the municipalities of Andalucía there are also offices where you can obtain help and advice on accessing medical assistance. If your circumstance is a police matter, the first number to call is the National Police on 091.

Andalucía also has a European Emergency Services free information line on 112, which coordinates emergency calls and can offer help in Spanish, English, French and German. The 112 telephone line is a recommended first-stop in any medical emergency.

WIDGET GENERICO

One Response to Public Health Centres in Andalusia

  1. Francisco Mérida %A %B %e%q, %Y at %I:%M %p

    Buenos días,

    A modo de queja/sugerencia: me parece muy mal que tengáis un 902 para Urgencias. Le acaban de cargar 6€ a mi madre porque llamó (victima de la ignorancia) pidiendo una ambulancia para mi abuela moribunda.

    Muchas gracias por engrosar las arcas a costa de la gente necesitada. Sé que la persona que lea esto no tendrá ninguna culpa, pero me ha ha parecido tan deplorable que no he podido aguantarme. Sería tan fácil como indicar el 112 o el 061, números más simples y más conocidos.

    Un saludo
