Hello everyone! I recently joined AngloInfo and did a search regarding my topic title. The results showed a discussions thread back in 2010 regarding Chris at Algarvemobility@hotmail.com. I sent Chris an email but it came back as a failed delivery. Does anyone know if Chris or algarvemobility is still around, or know of anyone else who might be able to offer info regarding disabled folk? Obrigado in advance!
Hi, I am intending to have long stays in Portugal but will not be resident. Can anyone advise if I can use my S1 form to access the system. What is the standard of health system and how does it work?For example, costs involved and care for serious illness? All information would be greatly appreciated.
I am retired and receive a UK State Pension and live near Faro. I need to take medication for high blood pressure and an eye condition. I submitted an S1 form to a local health centre have now got myself registered into the Portuguese national healthcare system. Before I achieved this I paid consultancy fees to 2 doctors and obtained prescriptions from them. Can I now get the tablets and eyedrops for these prescriptions from the state system at the local health centre or hospital without a lot more fuss and expenditure? Thanks.
