Healthcare in Portugal

In Portugal, official services for providing healthcare to the population are organized as the National Health Service. In addition to this public service, there are freely available private health institutions and professionals.   The hospital al network is made up of modern and well-equipped units, distributed throughout the country, which have long-standing relationships with the major international insurance companies.   In order to make overseas patients feel more comfortable, hospitals are implementing personalized patient care and monitoring services, with English as the language of communication.   Portugal also has an Integrated Medical Emergency System, which guarantees the fast and accurate provision of healthcare to accident victims or anyone suffering a sudden illness, and rapid response times by the emergency services (did you know that average emergency call response times currently stand at 7 seconds)
