Healthcare in the Canary Islands

I have said on several occasions that the healthcare, particularly in Tenerife, is excellent. Below is a chart showing you how to access the system as a permanent resident of Spain.

Follow the flowchart to find out which situation matches your personal circumstances, so you can register correctly. The contact details for the organisations in the flowchart can be found in Useful Contacts.

Remember that this flowchart only contains general information. Your entitlement to register for healthcare will be determined by the Spanish authorities.

Be aware that it may take some time to register – don´t wait until you need to see a doctor to get the paperwork completed.
