Does anyone know the criteria which govern access to Portuguese health services, in particular registering with a general practitioner?  I know that an EU citizen can access health services by obtaining a European Health Insurance Card but are other nationals living permanently in Portugal able to access national health services here and what is the procedure to follow to register?Thanks.

Does anyone know of the approximate costs for knee and hip replacement operations in the Lisbon area?  It would also be helpful to know of people's experience with these operations here in Portugal.

Hello, we have recently moved to Cascais and after much discussion with my employer, I have opted to sort out my own health insurance. To give some context this would be a policy for myself, my wife and our three children, ages 0, 2 and 5 I was looking for guidance / experiences on the pros and cons of an expat policy versus taking out a local policy which is a lot cheaper but seems to offer a similar level of coverage.  One other point - if I take out a local policy do I still need to go to a state run medical centre first for a referral?  I was looking at a local policy with Medis as that allows use of the local CUF Cascais hospital which I found to be very good when my Mum recently visited and managed to fall and break her pelvis - cue 20 days in hospital and a medical flight back to the UK last week!  Excuse my ignorance but I stupidly assumed my company HR department would have been more helpful but they have let me down !!! Best wishes,Anthony.
