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.
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.
