WHO WE ARE

We are the Healthcare Team, a small team funded by the UK Department of Health and based at the British Consulates in Madrid and Alicante. Our aim is to provide advice to British Nationals on how to correctly access healthcare Spain.

WHAT WE DO

We give advice to British Nationals on how to access healthcare in Spain. This includes those who are visiting (on holiday or a temporary stay) or living in Spain. If you have an enquiry you can contact us through this website, or call us on 902 109 356.

This website has been developed as a part of the EHIC Campaign that was carried out between September 2012 and May 2014. The campaign set out to provide information on:

- Who is and who isn't entitled to use a UK European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) in Spain;

- What cover the EHIC gives you while on a temporary visit in Spain;

- How to correctly register for state healthcare in Spain if you are living here on a more permanent basis.


WHAT WE DON’T DO

We do not give advice on pensions or benefits, but we can inform customers about which UK pensions and benefits may also give entitlement to healthcare.

We also do not deal with cases regarding the quality of care received by a customer, follow-up care after being discharged from hospital, medical repatriation or obtaining someone´s medical records. For these kinds of enquiries, customers should contact the authorities directly. Our advice and cases are always to do with access to healthcare and making sure somebody is correctly registered.
