Doctors and Hospitals

Most Irish visitors to Spain do not experience problems. However, when things go wrong, difficulties encountered abroad can often seem more frightening and distressing than at home due to unfamiliarity with language and local procedures. For information on what to bear in mind when travelling to Spain, please see our current travel advice.

While we cannot give you legal or medical advice, or formally recommend or pay for doctors or lawyers, we can provide information on local legal and medical practitioners. This website has information on English speaking medical services in Madrid.

Information on medical services for other regions are also available on our individual Honorary Consulates pages. 

General advice on what to do in the event of a medical emergency is available on our Emergency Assistance pages.
