When you need extra support in a foreign land, we are here for you.
Portuguese Health System Orientation
At NeuroLoulé Medical Centre, we pride ourselves on offering the highest level of quality care for our patients which, at times, involves helping resident foreigners gain access to the Portuguese Health System (Serviço Nacional de Saude).
To suddenly find yourself in a situation where you need to access the healthcare system in a foreign land, can be both frightening and overwhelming. What is comprehensible and easily navigated in your home country may feel stressful and bewildering when abroad, particularly when undergoing an unexpected health crisis or facing long-term assistance with a newly diagnosed, chronic disease.
Whilst NeuroLoulé Medical Centre provides private healthcare, our dedication to the well-being of our patients means that, whether supplementing your treatment plan with state healthcare is the most fitting solution for your condition, or simply a circumstantial necessity, we are always happy to provide an orientation of the health system in Portugal, in order to ensure the best possible outcome.
From explaining the necessary steps involved in acquiring an SNS number (Numero de Utente), to helping you navigate an unfamiliar landscape, our team strives to ensure your experience is as uncomplicated and beneficial to your well-being as possible.
