Hospitals and clinics
If you are looking for the perfect place to recuperate with the best climate, Tenerife is the ideal destination. You will be able to rely on the health infrastructure of a European destination, together with the perfect conditions for rest and recuperation, not to mention the best professionals and up-to-date equipment.
If you take out health insurance, it will generally cover the cost of seeing a private doctor. Moreover, hospitals and private clinics often have agreements with private health insurance companies.
European Health Card
This is an individual card that certifies your right to receive any healthcare assistance you need from a medical point of view during your temporary stay in Tenerife. The card will be valid if you are from any of the EU countries (Austria, Belgium, Cyprus, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden or the UK), from the European Economic Area (Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway) or from Switzerland. Remember that your European Health Card will not be valid if your reason for travel is to receive specific medical treatment. Also bear in mind that the card is valid for a limited period.
Emergency Number: 112 (24/7)
Calls will be attended in Spanish, English or German and you will be allowed to access the Emergency services in the event of an accident or fire, cases of citizen safety, and land and sea rescue operations.
