Valencia Health information

The Spanish National Health Care System has a vast network of medical centres and hospitals, spread across the country. They offer all primary care services, as well as specialised attention.

Health care for the citizen of the European Union

You are entitled to free medical and hospital care:
Having shown your European Health Card (EHC), you will be seen by a GP at a local health centre or at your accommodation if you are unable to make the journey. If you need to see a specialist or go into hospital, the GP will give you the relevant medical certificate or referral. Accident and Emergency services are available at hospitals.

You will require your European Health Card (EHC)
From 1 July 2004, the European Health Card will replace the current temporary stay forms - principally the E-111 and E-128. It entitles you to the same medical care as before, identical to that received by Spanish citizens. It is valid for the period shown on the card.

It is available from the relevant healthcare organisation in your country of origin. Private doctors and hospitals in Spain do not accept the European Health Card. If you require private healthcare you must settle your own bills or take out an insurance policy that covers it.

When are forms still necessary?
If you need hemodialysis or any other type of specific treatment during your stay in Spain, you will need the E-112 form, as well as authorisation from the relevant institution in your country of origin. Remember that the following are not covered in Spain: dental treatment (apart from emergency extractions) and repatriation for medical treatment.

If you forget your European Health Card (EHC):
You will have to pay any hospital, medical or pharmaceutical bills in advance, and then seek reimbursement from the relevant organisation in your country of origin, providing all receipts.

Remember that the European Health Card is not valid if you have travelled to Spain in order to receive specific medical treatment. The same applies to all other EU countries.

Some countries do not use the European Health Card yet. If this is the case, you should travel with the relevant document from your country, which has been designated valid until the new card is introduced. In any case, you should contact the relevant office in your country of origin for full details regarding current requirements to receive medical care in Spain.

Emergency Service

The emergency phone number is 112, valid and free in the entire Spanish territory.

Pharmacies

In Spain, medications are obtained at pharmacies. They are all marked with a green cross. You will get your prescriptions from your doctor. If you come from a country in the European Union, or your country has health agreements with Spain, you will have the same prescription drug benefits as Spanish citizens.

They are usually open straight through from 9am to 14pm and 16pm to 22pm. They take it in turns to close on Sundays and holidays. When a pharmacy is closed, the addresses of the nearest duty pharmacies are displayed on the door. A few pharmacies remain open late and even all night.
